Answer
From the information that I have, you will have to be retested. There is some confusion about the period of time. Some do say that 2 years or so. Please ask your doctor about this. I feel certain that you have learned not to do this again in the future. I will pray for you to be able to sleep. Do you have any religious beliefs to help you during this time?
