Q: i went to the emergency room a month and a half ago , I had an infection in my testicle

The ER sent me home with an antibiotic, which the pharmacy would not fill because it would cause a severe. Reaction to my every day medication, I called my Doctor, left them 4/5 messages, I also informed the doctor through the portal what was going on. In the mean time the infection is getting worse by the hour, After the 4th day, he replied to my message, so I replied back to my doctor, with no message sent cause he decided to BLOCK my messages refusing to treat me, and abandoned me, I was in so much pain. I returned to the emergency room, where I was admitted, and they removed my testicle, theni was released an had to go back to the hospital for another surgery where my testicle used to hang out, now I'm looking for a 3rd surgery, any suggestions on this?
