Suggest treatment for recurrent diverticulitis

I have been told that surgery for recurrent diverticulitis is needed after last episode with abscess and perforations. Is there any alternative? I have been on a clean high-fiber diet for 1 year and have lost 200 lbs. but still got the infection and can t afford another hospital stay. Can this be done safely laproscopically?

The diverticulum will keep getting infected and cause a lot of complications. It is best to get it removed surgically to avoid further attacks.
