Can perforated sigmoid recur?

In 2002 I had a perforated sigmoid. Had never been told of having diverticulosis or diverticulitis. 46 yrs at the time. Had sepsis, gangrene no bowel sounds. Wore colostomy bag two months. Sixteen yrs later, have lower left abdomen pain and no appetite. Could I have a recurrence of perforated sigmoid?

It depends on which surgical intervention has been performed. With the symptoms you mentioned, a physician should be consulted.
