You could request your primary do a hair drug test- which shows results for months back up to current depending on the length of the hair sample.
Unfortunately, the time frame to prove a false positive is gone already.

Oh gosh.  That's rough. I think the statistic is that drug tests produce false positives 5 to 10 % of the time.  Which is a lot.  Is this a pain management clinic? Cocaine is one of the drugs that doesn't have as many false positives though.  Is it a one and done policy at the clinic?  Will they not retest you?
