Hi Carol:
Just be honest like you have been here at Med Help. Tell the Doc excatly what you've told us and let him know how your feeling. Tell him that your not a drug seeker but a real person with real pain. Also tell him that drug tests have been known to be wrong and that he needs to give you a chance. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and praying that everything goes alright. Good luck my friend,

Hi Again Carol,

I am so glad that you have an appointment. At least that's taken care of. And as everyone said your honesty will go along way. I bet they have heard of this before and won't be surprised that this has happened to you.

In the meantime will your surgeon prescribe you more pain meds? Indeed you must have some post-op pain. He may be willing to prescribe you a few extra if you explain what happened.

Additionally your former doc should have to prescribe you something to help with the withdrawal symptoms. You should not have to go this alone.Keep hanging in there. We here if you need to vent. Thank you for keeping us posted. I will look forward to hearing how you are doing. Take Care, Tuck
