    Hello bunnykelly !
    You mentioned one doctor would retest you...and then came back with ideas to try injections....
    To me, that sounds like doctor is willing to work with you.

    Followimg his guidance and continuing to have good communication re your pain levels...doctor may in time reevaluate your situation.....? I don't know...but since he wants to try other treatments for managing your pain..that means he still wants to work and help you.

    This happened to me once as well.  They said I had Oxycodone in my system when the only thing I was taking was my Hydrocodone that was prescribed to me.  Those tests they do in the office are inaccurate about 50% of the time.  They need to send the test to the lab FIRST before accusing the patient, but they aren't doing that....

    It would make more sense if they did the drug test at the end of the appointment and if there is an abnormality then they should send it to the lab to confirm.  If it's confirmed then they should bring that up to you at your next appointment, or call you...
