Petitioner's Opinions To Support For A Call For Fibroid Research & Education Act.
Signature No. Petitioner Locality Opinions
537.  A.C Bournemouth I support this peition as I was forced in to an unwanted hysterectomy at the age of 43, whilst a single parent of a 3yr old who still needed lifting. The impact of this was devastating for myself and my child. I was given a re-section which failed, making my symptoms much much worse, which then left me requiring a hystrectomy. At no time was I told of alternative treatments such as myomectomy, tailored ablation, or uterine artery embolisation. The NHS HAS TO STOP PRESSURING WOMEN IN TO HYSTERECTOMY as a treatment for fibroids.

535.  A.F Edinburgh
534.  A.S Edinburgh
533.  T.E Denbigh Why do all doctors think that removing a womans womb is the answer to everything?? it's an archaic attitude,Doctors need to be re-educated in this matter.
532.  D.E Denbigh I've just descoverd I've got fibroids, by mistake (i was scanned for other reasons) and I'm quite horrifided that because I'm over 40 most Doctors (male and female) seem to think it's a simple answer to whip your womb out. of course it means that they dont have to put much effort and time in to look for what might be best for thier patients, typical of today's money grabbing attitude.
531.  A.S Sheffield
530.  C.C Aldwick
529.  L.G Brighton
528.  E.D Brighton
527.  J.B STRANRAER More research is needed. i also have fibroids , i have been to my gynaecologist and he only gave me two options. hormone injections for 6mnths or hysterectomy. i went for the jabs but they only shrunk my fibroids by half, the biggest being 5cms. therefore i have to go back and see what else can be done. i am 39 yrs old.
526.  M.B Brighton No one seems to have a clue about the causes of this very common problem, a solution needs to be found.
525.  A.M Nottingham
524.  E.T Sturry
523.  L.G Harrogate Fibroids have awful effects on daily life much more research must be done to find the cause.Help must be found for the next generation of women
522.  R.O London Reading the stories about the suffering caused by fibroids is bittersweet. bitter because of the lack of information despite the amount of people affected by this parasite but also the lack of care and commitment required to help eleviate and cure this ailment.I happened to come acoss this site by accident dureing the numerous attempts to reserch the topic.I was touched and relieved to find women who could identify with the ordeal i am experiancing. It is good to know that so many women are realising that they can and should seek other opions,and that it is their right to have a voice in the methods used to cure them.It is very sad to see that in this day and age we are still in the dark about this ailment and even sadder that their is not enough effort, awareness and fundding needed which is vitial for its cure.
521.  S.B High Wycombe There has to be better treatment that hormones or hysterectomy.
520.  C.J Kidsgrove
519.  A.A London I\'ve been told that my unique option to a large fibroid is hysterectomy, no alternative. I feel confused and scared about not having others options available. We need to be completely involved in whole process it\'s too risky to leave those decisions to doctors, it\'s our bodies we\'re dealing with. More research in this field it\'s needed.
518.  Z.J London
