Ervine, if it doesn’t cause you any discomfort and it’s not too big, you can leave it. If actual intestine moves in and out through the hernia, you will have to have it repaired as it might cause bowel obstruction. The surgery itself is safe and there should be no complications whether you’re a diabetic or not. Good luck.
