Very new to this forum, but of course wanting to tell our story (so sorry for my bad english since this is not my native language)

We got diagnosed a year ago and in Dk as so many other places, you don't get treatment.
But a few months ago we found out that India was our chance, so we started quite a project with finding a contact we could trust, finding hotel and buying tickets to the plane, getting the right visa and the right vaccines and everything.

So we went to India.....
...we got the right medications and went home after 10 days in Delhi.

Back home now, and with our doctors to monitor us during the treatment.

Been taking the medications for about 6 days now and only being a bit more tired than usual, maybe feeling like having a cold on the way as side effects.

Hoping this will be a succes.
Praying for it!!

Hello Rikke and welcome to the forum,
I suppose Dk is Denmark and that there are problems importing medication to your country. Well done for being enterprising and going to India for treatment.
What is the position for hepc patients in Denmark? I take it that treatment is not available locally. Do please let us know what the situation is there - people here would be interested.
The very best of luck with your treatment.

PS You might like to post details of your condition in your profile. It is helpful to other users

Good Luck to you, what did the meds cost and which one did they prescribe.

I have completed another Sof/Dac brew for 10 months and had a 12 week booster med from Doc Freeman.

Will get my bloods done end of next week and if it has come back will go again.

I sourced mine in Benglaru/ Bangalore from a Live Liver Surgeon who was young but knew his shit, very helpful.

Best of Luck
First diagnosed Nov 2012 with Hep C 1a End Liver disease
Failed peg and Sof/dac
Given 18 mths to live Aug 2014
Failed sof/dac July 2015
Sep 2015 given till March 2016 to live as nothing they can do
Sourced a supply of sof/dac from India told I was a fool by staff at SCGH
Been in a coma twice 2016 6 stays in Hospital
Last 4 weeks have been unreal back into life again
Hope No One else is treated like Shit by Med Specialists as the Nurse are UNREAL The Good Doc Freeman is genuine Barry Ashton

Thanks for the nice welcome to this forum. I am still trying to find my ways around here, but can you guide me to where I write details on the condition?
I would be happy to give details and be helpful to others, I am so happy to find the help I needed when I got the diagnosis.

For HepC patient in Denmark you don't get treatment unless you are very sick. Your liver has to be extremely damaged, so you can have this condition in 20-30-40 years before they will treat you.

If we want to buy the meds outside Denmark, you can have it send to England and then go to pick it up, but it is not very secure to do it this way.
But it is legal to go to India (or where ever you can get the meds) and bring back supply for three months for yourself. So we did this, but it was difficult to figure out where to get it, who to trust, finding someone here in Dk who took the same journey we did.
But we succeeded and if I can help other patient with this, I sure would do so.

The meds cost us around 2000 US dollars pr person and we got from Delhi

Hi Rikke,

Welcome and thanks for posting your story as well as an overview of the HepC treatment situation in Denmark. This is the type of information that really can help others. Well done for taking control and working through all of those hurdles.

Intermittent tiredness seems to be one of the side effects for some once treatment starts but you really will feel the difference once the medication starts to work its' magic. :) #flower #flower

I tried to follow the link to write in my diagnosis and all the numbers, but for some reason my computer won't accept it.
So maybe later on I can.

But I am so happy to find this place, this site. Feeling like I am part of a community.
I am not hiding the disease for anyone, everybody around me knows this has happened. I think it is important to be open about it if it is possible.
I am aware that it is not possible to be open for everyone, but for me it is, and I am telling poeple what's going on. But they don't really understand what it is like, just as I wouldn't really understand how it is to have fx a heartcondition since I never tried it myself.

I am actually proud of myself for taking control. When I was diagnosed, my world fell apart and I felt like I couldn't do anything about it, but then a wonderful nurse pointed me in the direction to India and the possibilities in bringing home my meds.

In fact, I came in contact with another patient in this process and he asked if I could bring medications home for him too, so I did, and I would do it again if someone came along and asking.
I want to help if I can, and I can totally understand if other people think it is too much to go to India to pick up their meds.

And it is perfectly legal for me to do so

But for now I just feel happy to have found this site

Being very extatic and happy now!!!!!
Got my blood taken on tuesday - there was a technical problem at the hospital so I couldn't get it taken friday as planned.

But today I got the result!!
In just 3 weeks I beat this !! My testresult is negativ...

Of course I have to finish the cure, so I'll stay on the meds for three months as planned. My doctot said I had to so I will. But she expected this to be a finished chapter for me

I couldn't be more happy now #love #love #love

There is a positive twist to the story now.
My BF and I was contacted by some other patients, asking if it was possible to get them medications for this.
So we are going to India again in a few days.
Our wish is to help others, not making money on this. We just want to help - the healthcare system in Dk can't do anything, but we can.. and it is perfectly legal.

I will of course keep on with writing
