Hi all I'm new here,
Just wondering if I can ask a few questions please?
I have recently attended an appointment with my spinal consultant who has told me I have a fractured facet joint in my spine. The pain has been going on since childhood and only been found now, as the pain was referred to my hips so that was the only place that was x-rayed. He has referred me for a CT scan to check the state of the bones as it's never been done before.
First of all is a facet fracture common? I've never heard of this before!
Also I've been told I have divets or dimples in my discs. Does anyone know what this could be as he didn't cover it as he said it's nothing to be concerned about just yet?
I do have to go and see him again after my CT scan so will ask more questions next time, just I'm a bit puzzled.
