709.  L.S Contract
708.  T.G St leonards on sea Im going to the hospital tues the 18th to see a consultant about anemia and fibroid treatment, my gp who is male has told me to not allow myself to be bullied into an hysterectomy!!! We need to be given more options and have better treatmemnt and understanding, not bullying into radical, major surgery!!!

702.  C.S East Ham I had been suffering from fibroids for the last 2 to 3 years without knowing it. I only became aware of it when I fainted one day and started to get a fever and bloated stomach and I became aneamic and was admitted to hospital with an infection. My consultant decided that the best option for me would be a myomectomy four months later but the risk was that I may have to have a hysterectomy as my fibroid was very large (3kilos) and also if they found anything life threatening during the operation. I am glad to report that my operation was successful and I only had a myomectomy and my uterus was preserved. My consultant and her team were absolutely wonderful and I hope that this good work can be encouraged elsewhere and I was lucky I have a good GP who referred me to the right people who dealt with me successfully. I wish all women can experience the same treatment as myself. C.S London
701.  M.D Dudley I have just been been told that i have fibroids, and i need to know what they are all about and how they develop.
700.  M London
699.  D.L Sheffield I really feel more research needs to be done on fibroids, after unexplained abdominal pain, piles, irregular and very heavy bleeding, I had 2 abdominal scans and was told all was well. I have just had a transvaginal scan and they have diagnosed a fibroid growing in my uterine cavity. I find fibroids tend to be written off as so many women have the without problems.
698.  T.L Pembroke dock
697.  L.C Bath
696.  J.H Abingdon. Been diagnosed six months ago. Has been prescribed tranexamic acid to be taken on first day of period., three times a day. Not working, so I am very much in favour of more research.
695.  J.H Abingdon I have fibroids and has been diagnosed for two years. And I have heavy bleeding every month, which turned out to be very painful. Every time I went to see my doctor I am Forbes off with more tablets that doesn\'t help me at all. I have asked on several occasion if I could see a gynylogist and my gp has Sid ghat it is not a necessity, as the government has put fibroid treatment as a non emergency ilness. Tried bleeding for three months on the trot. It is very depressing and makes you feel tire all the time.
694.  A.H Basingstoke
693.  M Oswestry I have fibroids and gp's keep assuring me it's nothing!! So i sit back and wait until they grow into a football???? i find the approach unsatisfactury....more reaserch needs to bee done.
692.  S.P Parkstone
691.  S.A Liskeard, Cornwall I have just been diagnosed with having two fibroids.I'm due to see my GP again to discuss my options. I believe I've had them for a while and have suffered with severe pain and depression. It has truly affected my quality of life and wish I had been diagnosed earlier. Treatment options seem some what severe. Further research needs to be carried out. I'm a registered nurse and I've had to completely change my working life in order to cope with my symptoms. It's dibilitating to say the least.
690.  F.W Arnold I am 30 years old and suffering with fibroids. As a result I am now anaemic and my symptoms include passing out, extremely painful periods and bloating which makes me look like I am 3 months pregnant. I have so far been refused a hysterectomy because of my age and because as the hospital put it I may want children in the future even though I have made it quite clear that I don't. I find it quite incredible that if I was 40 or over that would be the only option I would be given and yet at 30 having had enough of suffering and having no life I am not allowed one. I am an intelligent and educated young woman who has explored other options and knows the risks involved. I am blessed with a child already and I don't want anymore, I also don't want for my son to keep witnessing me suffering as it is affecting him too. I just want my life back and it's time the medical profession should listen to women suffering with fibroids and help them instead of continuing to let them suffer!
