I have had back surgeries and doc just told me I have an extra vertebrae (Sixth Lumbar Vertebra) in my back-not to common
And I was wondering if anyone here has been told this?
And I wonder why some of us has it and y others dont?

For an individual with 5 vertebral bodies, they would be in agreement when labeling the L4-L5 level. If the individual has 6 lumbar vertebrae, however, the radiologist would typically refer to the lowest level as L6-S1 and the level above that L5-L6, which in the surgeon’s mind, would be correctly labeled L4-L5.

I have never heard of this! I know people who have extra ribs though which seems common.
