Elisabeth offers advice for women with spinal fractures who are afraid to seek treatment.

Elisabeth:
I would tell a woman who has a fractured L5 that it may be scary, but it’s so important to take care of it early. I was told by the woman that I spoke with that she finally went in and had surgery because they had told her that she waited too long and had permanent nerve damage, and that really hit me.

I don’t want to have any permanent damage. I wanted to get in, get this taken care of so that I can go on and live a normal life. I want to have children. I want to be a nurse and be able to work forever and play with my kids and not have any permanent nerve damage or any permanent limitations because I didn’t take care of it.
