Thanks for all of your help and comments, I appreciate them! I was not able to tell them anything up front. I did call the contact within the Company that I am going back to who was listed as a resource for the Drug Testing but she said that due to HIPAA regulations and privacy concerns, she is not involved at all in this part of the process. She said that if I take the test and come up positive, they will have a Medical Review Officer call me and talk with me about the circumstances and any type of medical explanation I might have to explain the positive. When I actually went to the lab to take the test, I talked with the LabCorp person who actually administered the test and asked her if I needed to declare the medications I am taking up front - she said no, that they can no longer make a note of that or accept the information - again, due to HIPAA and privacy concerns. She also verified that they would have a Medical Review Officer call me when the test comes back positive. She said that the pain meds I take will show up, however, they are really looking for illegal drugs. She said that as long as I have the RX that is made out to me, I should be fine. I did go and get all of my meds re-filled the other night before I change insurances and I was actually reading the insert for my Protonix - apparently it too can cause a false positive for THC! So, I am still waiting now for the call from the MRO to go over my results and to have the conversation on what meds I am taking, etc.......I will let you guys know how it goes. Just wanted you to all know that Protonix can also register as THC in case any of you have to test and are on it.
Take Care and thanks again!

I live my life to the fullest, enjoy every day and am excited for the day when we will be able to say good-bye to CD and UC. I am becoming active in my local CCFA chapter and have found them to be a wonderful resource!
