Have the vet talk to your parents and explain that surgery is the only thing that will work if that's true.
Also ask your vet if there are alternative treatments that are less expensive. Also look and do research to see if there are low cost vet clinics and hospitals that can do the surgery at a reduced cost.
Also depending on your age, start finding ways to earn money to pay for treatment. Mowing lawns, babysitting, dog walking, working part time.
I've had a bad knee for well over twenty years that has dislocated well over ten times. I never had any surgeries until about seven years ago, there simply wasn't the technology to help it before.
Each time I dislocated it, I had weeks to months of physical therapy, massage, exercise and pain. It healed every time.
