||THIS TYPE OF DISEASE MAKES WOMEN\\\'S LIFE WOREST; BECOUSE SHE HER SELF LOOSE HER CONFIDENT DUE TO THAT FIBROID,WHICH MAY CAUSES INFIRTILITY SO IT SHOULD BE KEPT TOP OF AGENDA|
||My mother and four sister have all had fibroids and gone through the many procedures and pills to no effect eventually all having a hysterectomy. I am 45 years old and have experienced chronic pain and heavy bleeding that stops me enjoying my life. I refuse to go through the various procedures and pills and prefer the depo contraceptive injection however a locum gp refused to continued to prescribe me saying I was at risk of cervical cancer due to the fibroids. I am waiting to speak to my gp and gynae next week for information.|
||I've had to indergo surgery for this condition twice and I know further research needs to done in order eliminate this condition, I'm also aware of some wemen who have died because of this condition|
||Research into awareness, scanning, diagnosis and treatment requires urgent funding. I had years of pain and misery, completely unaware of what could be wrong and was only scanned after breast cancer diagnosis so too late to have children now. The Dr was hoping Tamoxifen would shrink the fibroids but they are still growing, pressing on my bladder and making my stomach look bloated. Please consider allocating funds to raise awareness of and to research this debilitating condition. Thank you for reading this.|
