Thanks for the query

From what i understand is that u have a vagino-intestinal diverticulitis which is making the feces come out through your vagina
If u donot get the operation done u might develop fecal in continence u might have to wear a diaper to prevent feces from coming out and smelling all the time
Also there are chances u might land up in sepsis as u r a diabetic as well
This can be fixes only by surgical means
