In brief: Yes
Major spine surgery in menstration women such as scoliosis correction often triggers menstration due to the physiological stress of the surgery.
Cycles should normalize a few months afterwards.

In brief: Yes
Any major surgery alters our bodies stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline.
This can alter menses and most typically, the cycle after the surgery will occur off- cycle, and may be heavier or lighter than usual.
