Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
895.  A.L Lemington Spa
894.  S.G Bristol Fibroids affect women's quality of life. We need more research into effective treatment
893.  S.J West midlands
892.  O.T London
891.  B.A London
890.  K.F Godalming
889.  P.I Crewe I think that every woman should know as much as possible about this condition, so that they can make informed choices about their treatment, and therefore potentially preserve their fertility for longer/ choose what is right for them as everyone is different
888.  P.M Meppershall, Beds I have suffered from fibroids since 2002. I've had some removed but at present have been dianosed with more, the biggest of which is 9cm and still growing. It can be painful and recently seems affects my energy levels and causes bloating. I don't want a hysterectomy due to the fact that it just causes more problems. So, yes, more research is needed.
887.  K.S Ealing I have just been diagnosed with one 10cm fibroid which causes me no symptoms except heavy bleeding for two days. My gynaecologist did not hesitate in advising me to have a partial hysterectomy. I am 46 with two children. His comment, 'Why keep your womb when you no longer have any use for it' astounded me. I am yet to find a solution as I am not suitable for guided ultrasound but there are other options open to women. The last resort should be hysterectomy. GPs do not have enough information.
886.  E.C Newtown I am currently under treatment for fibroids and feel that unless you are a sufferer, there is not a great deal of understanding or sympathy out there. We need to find out if there are preventative measures for fibroids at the very least.
885.  S.J Kingstanding
884.  M.L Dundee Why is it that so many Doctors think a women should have a hysterectomy to be rid of fibroids. There are women who may have lost children to illnesses and they may want the choice of having more children. All options to be rid of these fibroids should be looked into and the women themselves should investigate these optons themselves. After all its their body. We have rights too.
883.  K.M Manchester I suffer from fibroids myself, and it has affected my life drastically.
882.  E.K London
881.  M.R Lincoln
880.  K.G Lossiemouth
879.  P.B Bristol More research needed to identify the potential causes and risk factors for fibroids. Simply stating it is "more common in Afro-Carribeans" is not enough.
878.  S.K Welwyn garden city I have multiple fibroids that cause me pain, sadness and embarrassment because they are so big I loo like I'm 4 months pregnant and have to deal with people constantly asking me when the baby is due. This also makes life worse as I had a miscarriage at 5 months 4 months ago and I have to lie daily just so I don't make a bad atmosphere for everybody around me. I'm only 33 and still want to have children although because I have so many fibroids many say hysterectomy is my only options. I am amazed as this is a very common problem nothing has really been done to help women like me who from once being very confident in life working in musical theatre can now no longer do my job and feel less of a woman.
877.  S.A Pontypridd
876.  G.P Thorne
