Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1168.  R London
1167.  R.M London Considering how common fibroids is, it is quite shocking that there is so little research out there. More must be done to stop the trauma that many women and their families go through in having these benign tumours removed.
1166.  A.C London I have recently undergone a myomectomy surgery, for a large fibroid that made me look 6 or 7 months pregnant. However, I thought I was just putting weight on, so it went undetected for a long time. To be told that I had to have a major surgery at the age of 24 was terrifying, to say the least. I was shocked that there wasnít a less intrusive method available. But, as the fibroid was so large, I was told I would have to have the surgery in 3 months, after I just turned 25. I was not happy about this, especially considering that the recovery period takes about 6 weeks- I mean how would inform my employers about this?! Therefore, I agree that more research needs to be done into fibroids. The fact that doctors cannot say specifically what causes them is appalling. There should be less intrusive options available for the removal of fibroids, especially if itís large. This should be resolved. I also agree that many gynaecologist doctors funnily enough seem to be male; I think they need to be more sensitive when discussing options with their female patients. I postponed my surgery for a month, and the senior doctor I talked to about it was very obtuse and quite condescending about my decision. If any doctors are reading this- women are not going to be happy when you say the only option to remove this tumour growing inside you is through surgery! So please try to be a little more understanding and sensitive about it.
1165.  D.M Newmills GP diagnosis very poor and non specific, diagnosed with chronic fatigue and anaemia, despite the fact of telling GP I had fibroids. Early detection is necessary as my uterus has ended up into my belly button. I hear many women distressed at misdiagnosis or lack of diagnosis with common symptoms.
1164.  E.T Newbury
1163.  K.E Lowestoft
1162.  K.C Southport
1161.  L.S Halberton
1160.  J.G Matlock More research is needed. Women should not still be loosing their womb and ovaries to fibroids as a matter of course!
1159.  A.K Chatham I would like more research be done into the reason for having fibroids.
1158.  N.G Tregarth, Bangor I have discussed my fibroid problem and the only advice so far is to undergo a hysterectemy.
1157.  M.T.K Sawbridgeworth, Herts Been trying to conceive since late 2009, had my second myomectomy Dec 2011 and still not been able to conceive. I suspect the fibroids have grown back. I strongly vote for further research in Fibroids.
1156.  P.M Bristol
1155.  J.G London
1154.  R.D Bingley
1153.  A.A London
1152.  A.M Bingley
1151.  D.E Liverpool More research is needed for this condition which can cause real difficulties for many women on a daily basis.
1150.  S.H Minehead Earlier diagnosis is required given the variety of symptoms fibroids can cause. Limited treatment options when they get too large.
1149.  T.S Ramsgate
