Generally, surgeries that are elective are not allowed in jail.
Do you know how bad the damage will be without the surgery?
This is not elective surgery. It must be done right away to save function of his arm...
How can you step out of this chat, it just started!!!
Is there a problem with the chat?
Again, the surgery is not elective? What are my options?
If the surgery is necessary, then the jail is required to allow it.
What you need to do is convince the jail that the surgery is not elective.
In order to do that, you will need a letter from his doctor explaining the damage that will be done without it and the loss of function in his arm, and that it must be done now.
