I've now had two micro-perf's on the diverticula in my sigmoid colon in 6 months.
My first micro-perf resulted in a Sepsis blood infection that almost killed me, this second round I fortunately caught it before there was a blood infection, but the surgeon (US) said it is time to get elective surgery once it is fully healed / recovered ASAP to resection / remove the sigmoid colon entirely.
Reading through the procedure it seems fairly straight forward, but when looking at the purpose of the sigmoid colon being removed (the S shaping allowing to pass gas without crapping yourself), I am wondering if bowel and gas movements are just going to be uncertain the rest of my life?
Also the first IBS attack that was the most painful thing I've ever experienced caused an erectile dysfunction where my erection slightly curves to the left, I assumed that was a result of the shocking pain in that region and I am deeply concerned that this kind of trauma to that entire region I may come out with much more significant problems down there.
If anyone could comment on having had the procedure, and what the result was I'd greatly appreciate it, I cannot hardly eat or sleep thinking about having this resection done as going to the gym and eating better I did not foresee another micro perf happening again.
