Infection from cervical surgery can occur but are exceedingly rare. I am unclear why you would have slight fevers. Frontal headaches can occur from the cervical spine especially if you have degenerative facet disease of the upper 3 vertebra. X-rays including flexion/extension would be my first thought and if suspicious, a CT scan should be considered.
