I had Campath last year. Having had ‘agressive RRMS’ I was open to anything…However, it really worked! I have felt great for a year without a single relapse. This is something I’ve never experienced since diagnosis in 1998.
Sadly problems arise just when you think things are getting better…, the company are pulling the drug, renaming it and charging LOADS more.
At the moment it costs about 1 or 2 thousand pounds. Soon it may cost £50,000!! Which PCT will pay that? It is outrageous that our health comes, as ever, down to costs! How much more will each trust have to pay if we continue to go down hill and become more ill and dependent on others…
I think I’m lucky and will get my second and therefore last dose in a couple of weeks…but what about everyone else that this drug could/would/should help?
I hope others fight for their right to get this and thus have a better future to look forward too!
