Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1527.  I.B Bath
1526.  S.R London My first encounter of Fibroids was back in 2005 and again in 2007. Before that it was not something I had heard about at all so was a complete surprise to me when I heard I had the first one. I only decided to get my symptoms checked out after they got really bad. Raising awareness and research into Fibroids could not be more important. It would provide women with all the information needed so that it is not completely alien. The more information we have out there the better.
1525.  T.H BARNSTAPLE
1524.  D.H Newark
1523.  A.B Cumbernauld Fibroids do enormous damage to women's health, resulting in time off work to cope with excessive bleeding & pain. They can also have a catastrophic effect on fertility. we need an effective treatment now
1522.  E Marseille
1521.  S Laos Fibroids were unknown to me until I was diagnosed with them at a very late stage. I realise how much doctors and female and male gynecologists always avoided enquiring into my heavy and painful periods. Where they unaware, or disinterested? I don't know, but I realise that it is a taboo issue that needs further medical attention.
1520.  E.H Coventry
1519.  L.P NOTTINGHAM
1518.  A.B St Albans
1517.  S.B St Albans
1516.  A.W Badsey Without real research women will continue to be fobbed off with...'oh they will most likely shrink after menopause' and 'best leave well alone' , unless of course you are crippled by symptoms. I for one would like to be able to make positive choices about my health and the treatment of my fibroids and without research the medical profession will continue to let me down by peddling these myths and will not seriously offer me real alternatives within the NHS.
1515.  J.L Worthing
1514.  K.C Leicester
1513.  D.W Dyserth
1512.  E.T Norwich More research now, will surely result in less NHS resources being used in the future. Many women are suffering & this is unacceptable.
1511.  J.M Dorking I have to make a choice now. I have two fibroids of about 5cm, heavy bleeding that meant an ambulance was called by my doctor, extreme low pressure, need to pee a lot, bloating, discomfort/pain and Panis attacks from the pain which brings on breathing difficulties and I have asthma. I also have hypothyroidism, eczema, alopecia and possibly lipomatosis (under investigation currently). I'm 42, married and would like the opportunity to try for kid/s. The current options are UAE or abdominal myomectomy, I don't like the idea of either. Research and comparisons need to be made.
1510.  S.M Kenilworth 'Most women are glad to get everything whipped out', is what my respected gynaecologist told me. This is not good advice for a symptomless fibroid and needs to be challenged far more.
1509.  A.S London
1508.  A.F Hereford
