670.  L.W Bury St Edmunds
669.  C.B London
668.  E.D London
667.  C.M Barry
665.  G.C Hull 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.
664.  A.C Chipping norton
663.  M.E.W Golders Green
662.  J Southall 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
661.  J.S Milton keynes
660.  J.S Kempsey 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.
659.  S.J Mitcham, Surrey
658.  A.F Maghull
657.  V.H Ipswich
656.  W.B Duxford
655.  M.S Enfield middx Much more research is needed, i have been suffering for over twenty years. doctors are too quick to recommend hysterectomy.
654.  C.B Thelwall Reading all the stories on the site, tells me that I am one of the lucky one who was not let down by her GP. However, my referral to the wonderful surgeon who gave me my life back took 18 months, during which I was admitted to A&E for blood transfusion on several occasions. Why does it take that long?? This creepling condition has to be taken seriously right from the beginning!
653.  L.A Crawley
652.  F London I have suffered for over 18 years, passing out from chronic pain, heavy periods, miscarriages, passing blood clots, total incapacitation where i can not move or do anything for myself... but all i was ever given were pain killers and advice that it will go away sometime, then one night i was taken to A&E, unconcious and when i came to the Dr found out the cause, ordered for my hospital file and booked me in for an emergency myomectomy( my abdomen was equivalent to a seven month pregnancy). this was carried out two days later and was well for some time, but as i was suffering from secondary infertility (been pregnant before but have had no kids because of miscarriages)i somehow had regrowth of the fibroids.i toiled on with pain killers until my Dr eventually refeffered me back to hospital Gynea. consultant arranged US scan, MRI scan then booked me in for an operative laparoscopy this weekend. Fingers crossed, it will help this time as i am fedup of the pain, suffering and all the painkillers. All along i've been told to agree to hysterectomy although i just turned 43 last month (July). Social workers and uni lecturers and many others have all laughed it off as it not being a disabling illness, Alas.. what do they know . More awareness is needed to alert the general public that there are some of us who suffer chronically whereas others ill never even know that they have fibroids- as they will be just like (carriers o a disease- who are never affected by it)..
