Spina Bifida Occulta?

Anybody here with a LO with this. There is a chance my Junah man might have it and we get the MRI in July just wondering if there were any moms here I could chat with here about it?

Sorry I never saw this til now!

My oldest just found out he has this and he is 24! It never caused problems for him til he was in the military and then had a car accident. Surgery is an option for him, but I don't know if he will take the chance. He goes through periods where he has pain, but most of the time he feels ok.

How did you come to suspect it with Junah? Does he have a dimple?

It is funny you say that! 20% of adults have it and never know!
He has a VERY deep dimple, Looks like he has two buttholes, and his crack above it is a Y, not straight. The midwife said to have it checked and the ped sent us to Childrens Neuro Lab and they want an MRI

Pretty sure I and 2 of my kids have it. But, I've never heard of doing anything about it in the least.

My new DS has the deep dimple and I was just thinking that I should ask the pedi about it when we see him again.
