Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have done urine test and tested positive for Hydrocodone.

I shall be happy if you can post me whether you are taking any drugs (Pain Killer) as a pain management after surgeries on your leg ?

Majority of the drugs used for pain management contain some derivatives of Opioids which are basic constituents of Opiates. Hydrocodone is a end product of opiates excreted in urine.

Please d not worry itwill wanw away once you stop taking these medications.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
