    may result in some sore shoulder blades. So much depends on how long you were suffering from cervical problems before the surgery.
    The longer period of time may have easily resulted in bad posture which in turn had its impact on your shoulder blades.

    I waited almost a year for my second ACDF and a dealt with shoulder blade problems for close to a year. Unfortunately for me, because of that, some on going bad posture, work environment, some physical incidents, along with my previous lumbar and cervical surgeries, I herniated a number of thoracic discs. That just keep the shoulder blade condition up for years..

    So, make sure you are doing the proper exercises to avoid sustained shoulder blade concerns. You do not want to get yourself into a position in developing upper back problems.
