The most common surgery for prolapse is a pelvic floor repair, which is a board term to describe simple surgical repairs of the pelvic floor. 

More specifically, the term anterior repairs refer to the correction of the front wall of the vagina and posterior repair refers to correction of the back wall of vagina. 

It is likely that you will be in the hospital for 2-3 days depending on the type of prolapse operation and any medical conditions you have.
