Thank you for your good wishes.
I am so sorry to hear that you are having trouble accessing Tx.
It also makes me angry. Doctors do not have the right to be ignorant imo - that's just lazy.
Dr James Freeman published some very interesting information about the effectiveness of generics, and you can find it on the forum. I'm sure it is still on the post about EASL translators. Just use the search string EASL and you will find the attachment. Even if your doctors are not interested in finding out the truth it will surely help you.
The Australian government is funding Tx for all Hep C patients but I believe it's still not totally easy to get it, as doctors have to do some training to be allowed to prescribe and I suspect that many just can't be bothered.
I hope you persist in your attempts to access generic treatment (the vast majority of people on this forum have used them and and are getting their SVR12 clearances). Just do what you have to do. I cannot believe how much my life is changing and I still have 4 weeks of Tx to go.
