Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Did they run the tests more than once?
No. Just once at the local ER and again at the bigger hospital. We've been together since 1975 and I can assure you he had not take any illegal drugs. We are together constantly so there was no sneaking around. He has never done illegal drugs.
Okay, this may be due to a lab error, I strongly recommend the tests be repeated
It happened two years ago so there's nothing we can do now. I just don't understand what happened to him that would make all the false positives turn up.
Lab samples may become mixed up and it could have been someone elses's specimen, that is why the test should have been repeated
If there were positive opiates then it could be due to pain medication
Are you there?
They gave him Valium in the first ER and stuff to keep his blood pressure up. I'm not sure what they gave him for the seizures. It's my impression the Valium was to keep him calm on the bi-pap machine (set at 21 with 15 lpm oxygen).
He was pretty much unconscious upon arrival at the first ER and for the next 38 days.
Are you having computer problems? It took you a long time to reply
No, someone at the door.
I'm sorry I'm not sure what you are asking in your last reply
Just letting you know what they gave him at the first ER.
I just don't like the idea of having people thing we use illegal drugs when we never have. My husband would even take all his pain meds when he had his back worked on because he didn't like using them because they were too strong.
I understand, but if it was years ago that this occurrd then it is not possible to repeat the test to prove it was a lab error
OK. Just hoping there was an explanation for the two different results.
You're quite welcome
I hope this was helpful
