Surgery

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Do you have the results of the CT scan? That would help.

Anywat, it seems you've got a fistula, or connection between anus and vagina. Presumably due to infection. So the treatment is control of the infection with antibiotics followed by surgery to close the fistula.

That should stop the abnormal discharge.

Hope this helps.
