Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
2153.  S.J Northampton Being told that a hysterectomy is your only option at the age of 36 is heartbreaking.
2152.  C BRISTOL
2151.  B.W POYNTON Fibroid is stopping many women from conceiving and so the government ought to put fibroids in the top of agenda for research funding for better scheme for early detection and non invasive treatments

2149.  C Bristol Yes not enough consideration or serious thought is given to Women suffering with Fibroids and all gynaecological problems. My quality of life has been ruined due to fibroids and also late diagnoses of primary ovarian insufficiency. I was finally diagnosed with both conditions after 10 years of going to numerous doctors and gynaecologists. However I was still not given any treatment, help or support and just sent away to get on with it. I suffered with a fibroid causing me much pain and discomfort for 4 years before having it removed. Unfortunately I have now been left with adhesions so now waiting to have these operated on, whilst still waiting and wondering if I will ever have my quality of life back and any chance of ever having a child of our own.
2148.  A.H Petersfield Chronic condition that once causes symptoms leads to poor quality of life. Hysterctomy was my ultimate final option and given the rest of the options which seemed only temporary I decided to go ahead with sub total hyst for my condition . This has lead to a very long recovery time and will be min of 8 weeks off work which is career changing !! I am furious after all this time that treatments available are so negative with poor long term success rates. Fibroids run in my family with my mother having hysterectomy , now me and my sister now having to. Same treatment offered to my mum nearly 40 years ago!! We have daughters and they are scared of the same fate. Research into new less evasive successful treatments and priority to prevention would be very much welcomed. Though not usually life threatening, complications are numerous for many and quality if life is very much impacted. Spending your time exhausted through blood loss , in pain and planning your life around a toilet is no fun for anyone with this benign condition. It affects every aspect of your life!!

2139.  P.M Wakefield I have had fibroids for 10 years, at first they just made life awkward at times. Now they are controlling my life and i am considering surgery. Thousands of women deserve more information and treatment of this debilitating condition.
2138.  D.G Elland
2137.  M.C Daventry Before my fibroid was finally diagnosed, I was told by my GP that I have irritable bowel and then when I went back with my pain and heavy bleeding, that I was going through the menopause. Eventually, a scan showed the fibroid, I suffer bad back pain, especially at night, I have queried if this could be pressure from fibroid. I have had 6 months of GNRH, which should shrink the fibroid, but my continues to grow! So now I have been advised that there is a slight risk that it could be malignant. I am having a hysterectomy, which I have had to push for. I am exhausted, scared and fed up of the pain. Fibroids have ruined the quality of my life for the past 5-years. Earlier diagnosis and treatment is essential, for such a common problem.
