If you don't like your current doctor, then go see a new doctor. Or even a Noctor as others here have suggested. Pretty simple and completely your decision.

If you are afraid of your Dr., then you need to go to a different one. As far as your excuse for refusing the procedure, you've stated it clearly here. (You already had it and it failed. Your previous Dr. warned against it and gave very clear reasons why.) I hope you are doing everything possible diet-wise to help avoid UTI's. Best luck with this painful problem.

You have to be in charge of your own healthcare. Change doctors if you feel the way you do.

Instead of my bladder just hurting during a flare up, it now hurts all the time since he did that procedure. I feel like he butchered me. I'm in pain all the time. And my bladder doesn't always feel it when I have to go so I have a lot of accidents. Then other times I feel like I have to go all the time. My condition is much worse since the procedure.

That's not true at all. I'm on disability as well. Being on disability doesn't mean we have fewer rights as a patient as people with private insurance. We have just as much a right to say no to medical testing and procedures as other patients. So OP, I suggest you get a second opinion or just push your no button with this doctor. (I'd go with the second opinion if I were you).

But since you are on disability, I will disagree with the other posters here and suggest you see another M.D. and not a P.A. P.A.s are great if you have a relatively simple medical history, but they are usually not trained enough to handle the requirements of patients on disability, who typically have multiple chronic medical conditions. Just look for a doctor who spends time with his/her patients and listens well. I have found online patient reviews to be invaluable as well as recommendations from family members and friends. I have used the same specialists almost 10 years now and all of them are M.D.s.
