what if there is pot in my system and i am going to my 1st pain clinic appointment for chronic back
It all depends. Are you in a state where it's legal? The best thing to do is be honest. Tell them it was the only thing you could think of that might help the pain. If you lie on the forms, or in person, they will find out anyway and boot you out. It's always best to be upfront. Hopefully you will have a chance to talk with the doc one on one before testing begins. Even after the test, tell him the truth. He is the boss, not the nurses. So if you can make him understand the spot you were in, it will be HIS say as to treat you or not. Good luck to you and keep us posted.
Good answer Chris, the state you are in and whether or not it is legal will factor in as well as what type of condition you have that causes you to need pain management and your doctor's attitude toward homeopathy/natural cures. He/she will likely let you slide on the first test even if it is not legal in your state. Now if you come up positive for all kinds of other things, you may not slide. Make sure you don't have any other type of questionable natural cure in there, that could hurt ya in the doc's eyes. Good Luck Patti
I would say reschedule your appt for when the pot will be out of your system. A lot of pain management doctors do urine testing, and I know mine won't prescribe meds for anyone that has any signs of addiction. The pain clinic could really help you, and you don't want to start off with problems. That's my opinion - I don't know how far off new appts are, and how desperate you are to be seen.
I wouldn't advise that you reschedule either. You may run the risk of not being able to be treated by this doctor and I don't know if you knew in enough time before this appt or not as when you made it to begin with, you should have considered all the possibilities.
I am not against medical cannabis at all but it isn't legal in my state either.
Also do not use the term "pot" as to most that would be a red flag that it's maybe used for more than just pain. Use terms like cannabis or marijuana.
THC clings to your fat cells so depending on your weight due to fat it could take anywhere from 30 to 40 days to get out of your system if you were using it daily or regularly. If you are very slim, in 30 days or so it will be out.
If you only used it occasionally, it could be out of your system in less time.
If you are going to be seeing a pain doctor that isn't understanding of the use of this, you won't be able to continue doing this until/unless it is legalized.
There is no magic solution to get it out so don't fall for anything someone tells you. All you can do is drink plenty of water or coffee and tea as those two are diuretics which can help you urinate more often. Stop any soda drinking.
Try not to give the 1st through the 3rd urine of the day as the sample also but if you've done it regularly, none of this will help for now.
