Back pain after breast reduction.

I had a breast reduction 5 weeks ago and now I'm experiencing back pain in between my shoulder blades is this normal. I may have been moving a bit more?

More than likely this back pain is a result of utilizing different muscles for activity since your chest wall is probably sore. That said, best to check in with your PS if you have concerns.  Congratulations and best wishes, Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA
