What's a prolapse feel like?

Sorry TMI alert

I had TVT repair in March, stopped my bladder leaking and haven't had a check up since (haven't felt I needed one)
However, now I feel (*tmi*) "open" quite a bit, and also feel very swollen up and "full", like I need a bigger pair of pants!!
If I'd had a prolapse it would have been spotted by gynaecologist, right?

I had 2 x bartholins cysts removed in the past few years, this feels nothing like that though.

best go to drs or back to gynae for insepction grin

when i had a prolapse before a repair i felt as if I had a small golf ball or something in the entrance- slightly heavy and as if something was about to fal lout. My main prolapse was the front wall but when fixed he also tightened the back wall ( rectocele) and lifted the ligaments on my uterus.- you might see something move- especially if you cough- that would be your vaginal walls bulging.
