Angry Anyone with Recurring diverticulitis after Colon resection?

Is it possible to have diverticulitis again, even though I had a sigmoid colon resection a few years back after I had a micro perforation? I know that I had other diverticula besides the ones in the sigmoid. Yes I still get constipated and end up straining due to the con.
The reason I'm asking is that I have had two attacks in the past year that lasted 3 to 5 days with a lot of the same type of pain. My stomach hurts across my belly button area, I have cramps, my lower abdomen is tender, I have gas that doesn't relieve my pain, walking and riding in a car becomes difficult, stomach becomes hard and tender.
Is it possible to have diverticulitis attacks again?:confused
