Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
1142.  T.G BRIGNORTH
1141.  A.W EXETER
1140.  S.B WALLINGTON Having just learned that I have a fibroid which is symptomatic I support any research into fibroids.
1139.  T.J STOCKPORT
1138.  M.D Truro
1137.  K.P Wishaw Having a fibroid of 8*8.5 cm I have been offered 2 options for removal, those being uterine immobilisation (if suitable) or a hysterectomy. At the age of 41 I most certainly do not want a hysterectomy and I\\\'m not convinced that immobilisation would be a healthy option in light of hopes to conceive. Myomectomy possibly would be better - but not offered to me - why not?

1124.  E.P Ruislip I was diagnosed with fibroids during routine ultrasounds and although they were never that much of a problem, when I became pregnant things changed. I experienced bleeding during the first trimester of my pregnancy and pain in the location fo the fibroids, but doctors dismissed that these symptoms were related to the fibroids and the midwifes did not really give me advice or note that fibroids might interfere with delivery and did not schedule ultrasounds to check the growth of the fibroids. In the end We moved overseas and I was placed in the care of a gynacologist who as part of standard practice did an ultrasound at 32 weeks and noted that the fibroids had doubled in size, were impacting on my babies head, was partally blocking the birth canal and placed in such a way that a c- section delivery was very dangerous. As a result, she monitored the size of the baby and I was induced at 39 weeks to make sure the baby was small enough to give me the best chance of a natural delivery avoiding a c-section. I do not believe in the UK they would have treated my fibroids in such a way and I would not have had special interventions to make sure the risks were lowered.
