In brief: Sometimes

If the scoliosis surgery extends below L3 level, there can be an increase of biomechanical stresses on the remaining lower back levels increasing the risk of back pain with activity including sex.

In brief: Common

In adults back pain following spine surgery should be delayed for 4 to 6 weeks.
You should then find positions that are comfortable to each and provide fulfillment for your particular needs. Utilize firm surfaces. Speak to your physical therapist. Performing core strengthening & flexibility exercises may help in reducing your pain.
