Suggest ways to manage pain after stopping Meloxicam and Ativan
Oh, this one. the breakdown products of hydromorphone and heroin are identical. If someone takes hydromorphone the test administered by someone not well trained in addiction medicine and with a test that is not very good WILL show heroin. Yeah, this could be a problem. Finding a sophisticated doctor to test it correctly could be really tricky. Board certification in addiction medicine and calling just TO GET HAIR TESTED TO DEMONSTRATE NOT ON HEROIN. will be a bit pricey but worth it. Run it by doctor #1 that you are doing this and his trust matters to you. don't accuse, belittle, or demean, nor beg for drugs.
That brings up the next issue. The drugs. Specialized pain management. Orthopedists, Frankly a suboxone or methadone clinic are all options in theory but none are good options. The really good option is to get the first doctor to be educated by a peer that a dirty blood test requires considerable sophistication to interpret and manage but the first doctor was doing really well for a long time, and getting back to where you were which seemed pretty good.
