In brief: Maybe

It is possible for underlying ibd to complicate post-operative care of patients requiring segmental colectomy for complicated diverticular disease (i.
e. Perforation) especially when it comes to reversal in the setting of active ibd.

In brief: Not really

You can have both diseases, with each having potential to cause serious problems on their own.
The two do not aggravate each other in any direct way.
