Can mild facet joint arthropathy of the l/5 s/1 eventually go away for good? I'm 22 and injured my back 6 months ago and this came back on CT scan.

In brief: Unless

Inflammatory in origin (psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis), trauma can cause stress and injury that can lead to arthritis.
There is still a chance some of it may improve with time and therapy. Good luck.
