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.

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.
