The vagina is stitched to surrounding connective tissue but great care is taken NOT to include bowel in the suturing and so should not be effected in any way.

It is the special connective tissue beneath the vagina skin that is stitched together or repaired during prolapse repair. This repair get's rid of the bulge but does not necessarily affect the function of the bowel though some women may find that their ability to empty their bowel get's better. This is not guaranteed.
There is a very small risk of bowel injury during the operation.
