Is gas linked to scoliosis? I have bad gas all the time after eating. I also have bad scoliosis and it is low down on my back. I'm having spinal fusion soon, do you think potentially this is why I get gas? Maybe my intestines are being pushed to the side

Not necessarily: it might be constipation. Try as osmotic laxative like Miralax.
