Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
848.  G.L Warfield
847.  S.C Basingstoke In my early 20s I started suffering from severe abdomen pain, doctors investigated and concluded that I was suffering from IBS. It was not until my early 30s when I was unsuccessful at falling pregnant that a GP carried out a pelvic examination and found a large mass, an ultrasound scan showed a 20cm mass. After a myomectomy fibroids were removed and I was lucky to fall pregnant and give birth to a baby girl. However now at the age of 36 I have to face the option of a Hysterectomy due to multiple fibroids. I feel early detection of fibroid is very poor; throughout my 20s I went back to GPs concerned that I was continuing to suffering from extreme pain and blotted stomach, my concerns were dismissed and told the symptoms were just IBS, after 10 yrs of pain I was given the diagnosis of fibroids and only one doctor had the foresight to carry out an internal pelvic examination.

837.  K.B Blackwater I feel that the research needs to be more as I have fibroids and this affects my life everyday. I feel that n one really knows much about them or why they have developed. Also I would like to have children one day but know this could mean I have a higher chance of not being able to have children.
836.  D.B Forest Row There are all sorts of associated symptoms which can occur with fibroids such as anaemia and their symptoms, pressure symptoms, hormonal symptoms which seem to be disregarded by the medical profession except when doing research. Women have a right to have their symptoms acknowledged and treatment provided in order to alleviate these symptoms - not to be told that they are not due to fibroids when it is clear they are and those symptoms are often taken into account when doing research.

834.  J.P Bracknell Fibroid is a common problem in women. Please help us from our misery.
833.  S.T Gloucester
832.  D.C Wolverhampton
831.  E.O Islington London I feel there should more research into fibroid.
830.  C.C Willingham For far too long woman's health issues have fallen to the bottom of the heap. We urgently need more research to inform evidence-based practice in the area of fibroids especially early diaagnosis and alternative treatments to full hysterectomy or 'put up with it', our current most frequently offered options after years of pain and misdiagnosis.
829.  K.S Gainsborough
