Yes: Yes, i would recommend you go with her to see her doctor. Most likely he will suggest conservative treatment with bracing, medication for symptoms and not surgery.
Dr. Joel Cooperman
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 46 years experience
Yes: If you are concerned that the information she gave you is accurate at least a phone call could clarify what exactly she has and what was recommended.
