Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1293.  M.S London
1292.  M Birmingham Much more research and understanding is required of the impact fibroids have on women's lives. Much more research into the part genetics play and if fibroids are hereditary and how much life style and emotions contribute.
1291.  C.B Cinderford An important area to research. I suffered from really heavy periods due to fibriods. I eventually got to see a specialist and had some of them removed, things are better, but I have been told they will return.Need to find a way to prevent this happening. Fibriods really affect a womens life, more research is needed.
1290.  S.W Greater London I was diagnosed back in the 90's. My then GP (Birmingham) although very sweet,was miss guided. He said "they're small, tiny in fact and wont cause any problem, don't worry" Roll forward to 2008 I had forgotten about the Fibroids! I had moved from my home town. I went to new GP Practice in the Greater London area. It took a further 2years of going back and forth with symptoms. I was actually laughed out of the surgery room the first time with "So you thing you have cancer??? (Unfortunately I had chosen the day that Jade Goodie had past away and the media was advising women to go to GP's). I told the GP at that time no I don't think its cancer, i just know something is not right. Things changed when I remembered I had a pre-existing condition. New scan found around 5 good sized growths; possible more but they were unable to see fully. The only option I was offered by my GP (no specialist involved) was full hysterectomy. I was 45 years at that time and not yet found Mr Right or had a child. They just said 'why would you want child at this age? I felt my opinion was truncated by the 2 GP's I saw on later dates. *I would like to have the GP's educated and their bedside manner improved. *More options should be made known to us! Only through on-line research have I found other means to treat my fibroids. I'm now (nearly) 47 and my fibroids have recently become very large and painful. They're pressing on my bladder, back and stomach….I look pregnant! I'm fed up of the questions and stares around my belly. I want to have FIBROID EMBOLISATION as I feel this would be the best option for me…..but will they see that?? *How do I get my options heard? *Can I request to go to a more sympathetic hospital/clinic? Or even go to a different town? (I saw on line that Birmingham have a well established Fibroid Clinic (private) which is also link to one of the NHS hospitals (Heartlands, not my fav hospital though). *Why are we having to 'battle' for appropriate treatment? Currently off-sick with severe Fibroid associated pain.
1289.  M London Need better GP service and understanding. Individuals need to be taken seriously, especially by male doctors and the NHS.

1287.  C.M Huddersfield
1286.  H.S CHANDLERS FORD
1285.  C.C Kingston When this condition appears to be on the increase and can be the cause of chronic fatigue, pain and discomfort for so many, it stuns me to consider how poorly served women are in respect of early diagnosis and permanent non-invasive treatments. More research into ithe causes and effective treatments is necessary . It isn\\\'t just a woman\\\'s issue - families, husbands and the economy are affected too. Please take this seriously. Will please work!!!???
1284.  M..J.G Rochford Some help for the larger lady
1283.  R.S Telford We need improved responses from our GPs and understanding of the pain, distress and debillitating effect fibroids have on women. Being told to manage severe pain is simply not good enough.
1282.  K.P HORSHAM It took 10 years for me to get treatment for my fibroids as the NHS didnt know how to deal with cases in young people such as myself. I spent 10 years suffering and feel that more needs to be done to research these fibroids to prevent this happening to anyone else in the future.
1281.  L.F WALTHAMSTOW
1280.  J.B Tean ,staffs Gd website, yes def needs more research. I m suffering in silence, with other women just telling me to get sorted out. Haven t been able to have children because of problems and have just had my whole life spoilt,more should be done!

1278.  A.G Kenilworth A common problem does not equate to an acceptable problem. Women's lives are so interconnected to others that the whole of society would benefit if fibroids were treated effectively.
1277.  M.R.M Kirkby
1276.  D.H HARROW
1275.  E.S Bexleyheath In my view this action is long-overdue to have the spotlight and funding put into research into this very debilitating condition.
1274.  D.A SHEFFIELD
