Prolapse very rarely occurs in isolation and I suspect your problem may be caused by a uterine prolapse causing the front and back walls of the vagina to fall in, often simply lifting the womb back into place (sacrohysteropexy) straightens out the vaginal walls, resolving vaginal prolapse. This may also help with urinary incontinence but its not guaranteed and you may require a formal continence operation as an interval procedure (sub-urethral tape / TOT) but it's important to repair the prolapse first.
