I certainly will keep you all posted Ariel
I did see a specialist in December, and I have to say if anyone needs one in Brisbane, I'd certainly recommend him...just message me, as I feel a bit uncomfortable about giving his name openly, especially as he was totally cool with monitoring generics for me.
When all this broke I found myself a great GP (likewise, happy to recommend) who has done the course on the meds. She has since been in communication with my specialist so I intend seeing her tomorrow for script.
After that I might wander up to the hospital pharmacy and see if they have any stock..if not it might take my regular pharmacy a day or two to get the meds.
I am so freaking excited!!
Not just for me but for everybody who is suffering.
It does seem that there is a quota deal happening, in that after the first 6000 patients, the rest of the years treatments are free.
Hopefully we can knock that right out of the ballpark!
I also have friend who is cirrhotic and I am hoping she can get her GP to do likewise, because her treating Liver Clinic is swamped. Either way, I am sure they will treat her within a month.
