Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
627.  S.B Dukinfield
626.  S.B Sheffield Very frustrating. Its not talked about. The treatment options are limited. Non invasive options and \"alternative\" options are ignored. Health insurance providers don\'t understand it, and the impact it has on women\'s daily lives and their ability to function is ignored at large. It can be incredibly debilitating and take over your life - it has mine. I\'ve not been able to work, I doubt whether I can claim on my insurance (I need help here), I\'m in lots of debt - but I refuse to be carved open. I\'m addressing the root causes, which I have spent years getting to grips with, as there is no clear official information on this or on alternative courses of action - I\'ve had to go through a painful journey to find this out myself. Fibroids may not be life threatening, they may not be cancer, but that does not mean the impact they have is not profound or turn your world completely upside down. It effects everything: work, life, money, relationships, just the ability to have a normal life. I could go on and on...

621.  E.D London Fibroids affect so many women and is a recurring illness. Providing funding for research into the cause of fibroids will help to detect the exact cause and apporpriate treatment which will bring much needed relief and better health for affected women. It will also be cost effective and save the NHS millions, and leave women better able to contribute more effectively to the economy

617.  L.J London I wish there was an organisation composed of all experts called Women First where treating us with respect and creating proper options/researching every angle rather than brutal operations that often create more problems. I am 59 with ovarian cysts and fibroids.The last recommendation was to have ovaries out and take HRT which obviously feeds the fibroids. This was at the Portland Hospital for Women.
616.  H.M London
615.  S.H London More research needed into the root causes of fibroids, so prevention can be better
614.  S.D London
613.  M.D Glazebury Please help as I have suffered for the last few years and I am still suffering.
612.  K.M Horsham Just had very painful hysterectomy due to fibroids. Told one was the size of a 22 week old baby.
611.  H.B Bury
610.  K.R Coventry
609.  G.C London I was diagnosed with a 5cm fibroid ten years ago and told there was no need to do anything. I am 34 and currently bedridden with a 11cm fibroid that needs to be removed by myomectomy. I am in abject pain, the fibroid is petruding and I cannot work. I feel the 'watch and wait'method is absurd, do we wait until things are this bad? I can't help wondering if they would watch and wait for a benign tumour to get to this size in a man's body.
608.  J.C New Cross London Living with fibroids is not living, its surviving as best you can. There is so little information about non-invasive treatments that often GPs will only consider surgery. We deserve better. There should be more awareness in fibroid research so we can make informed decisions about our treatment.
