Returning diverticulitus

Hi I had colon surgery a little over 1 year ago. I had an abses (abscess) on my colon from diverticulitus and had 14 inches removed.. I have recently had some pain in the same area as where is was the first time. I was wonder can it return after having the sigmoid part of the colon removed..and how likely is it. Or could it also just be spasms where it was fixed? The pain is not nearly as bad as it was. I just dont want to be getting sick again. And what can I do to keep it from happening again. I am 37 years old.

Hi sugabeebee13,
Recurrence of diverticulitis may occur following treatment epecially in patients under 40 years of age. You need to consult your doctor if you still have pain.
