Hello and welcome to the forum. I can only imagine the fear you are going through and I would kindly suggest that you contact your medical insurance to see why you have been turned down for surgery.
In medical terminology, all surgeries that are not urgently required within 24hrs* of the medical assessment for surgery are “elective”. Elective surgeries go on a waiting list to be scheduled according to their urgency category (say within 1 week, within 1 month or within 6 months) while true emergency surgeries jump the scheduled queue for the OR.
The term elective surgery does not mean “unnecessary” or “on a whim”. You should be able to have the surgery without any problems re the necessity of needing it.
