Re: Missing a lumbar bone?

It is very common to have an extra or one less of a bone here or there. Sometimes people have only 1 kidney and they never find out about it. One of my kids has an L6. Another one has 2 extra half ribs, but only on one side.

No one has mentioned it before because, 1. they didn't go to the trouble to count all of your vertebrae or 2. because it really is fairly common so they didn't think it necessary to mention.
