Went to see mom on her birthday. She wasn't herself. Now on the phone she says she has knee cap dislocation. Should I go back and see her doctor?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.

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.
