Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1245.  E.J London I agree that as a very common problem which is not well understood, research into fibroids ust be prioritised. I had to have a hysterectomy due to very large fibroids which caused extreme pain each month. This treatment was drastic and has led to severe chronic post-op pain and disability one year on. I am adding my name here because I wish other women to be prevented from the horrific complications of radical surgery for this common condition.
1244.  M.G.E.L Derby
1243.  K.N Rainham essex This needs research, i have only been offered hysterectomy, nobody wants to do anything else. I do not accept this .
1242.  S.P London I currently suffer with fibroids that were so painful they thought I had appendicitis. I am going to consultations to find out the best route to take but it's rather scary and there is no sympathy. I am constantly told it's a condition that affects women esp Afro/Caribbean women so get used to it. It's difficult because it's something I could possibly live with as it's not a life/death situation but to be shirked off and told to go do my own research is a little disheartening.
1241.  J.B Poulton-le-Fylde
1240.  C London How can we prevent, cure , help ourselves and NOT line the pockets of surgeons - there has to be a better way!
1239.  A.W Sutton coldfield
1238.  S.W Battersea
1237.  K.H Plymouth
1236.  J.M Lytham st annes
1235.  J.N London
1234.  J.W Dudley
1233.  I Manchester
1232.  A.G Barking
1231.  E.M BRIGHTON
1230.  L.C Eastleigh
1229.  D Beeford
1228.  K.O Ansty
1227.  M.M Coventry It seems that medical professionals need this as much as sufferers so that they are in confident in prescribing alternatives to \'have a baby\'.
1226.  G.R Southampton Had abdominal pain and was sent for scan. 2.5cm fibroid was found. GP said pain was due to indigestion. Nothing done about the fibroid. About. a year later started having very heavy period, another GP said was menopause. Had to insist for another scan and lo and behold the fibroid had grown to 10cm. Insisted to see a consultant. Just saw one and now waiting to have hysterectomy. I am getting to 50. and have 3 kids so dont really mind the op. but if its a younger person who had to go through this and end up with a hysterectomy that will be very bad.
