2nd opinion: There are a variety of treatments for interstitial cystitis including medications and dietary changes. If you are not satisfied with the diagnosis of this physician then consider getting a second opinion. Emiron is a highly effective medication. Lidocaine bladder irrigation and interstim could also be considered.
