More explanation of the specific sequence would help in diagnosing
this.  What do you mean by "produces the message" or "return that QueryString"?

But to give you a general solution, build a handshake protocol between
browser and server using a cookie.  This allows the server to tell the
browser when it is expecting information.  This will also eliminate "double
submit" problems.
