Sorry for your dilemmas. The "chunk of you" could be hernia of bladder, rectal side of vagina, cervix, or all three. Of these, the cervix is the one that hurts, so probably it is prolapsing. With your history, it will get worse over time. Yes, it is important but not serious today. You may need to have it removed and the hernia repaired sometime. See your OBGYN.
Potential for Vaginoplasty
Candidates of Vaginal Rejuvenation or Vaginoplasty surgery are women who desire a more youthful appearance and function of the vulva and vaginal area. For some women, the effects of childbirth, aging, trauma, and/or genetics, causes their vaginal tissue and muscles to become stretched, which results in loss of strength and tone in the vaginal area. This may result in decreased intimacy and sexual satisfaction. In some cases, the laxity of tissues can be visible.
The lining of the vagina can be reduced, removing excess and redundant mucosa decreasing the diameter of the canal. The muscle ring, pubococcygeus, at the entrance or introitus can be tightened. These procedures along with exercises such as Kegles can help keep the muscle tone in this area. Aesthetic Vaginoplasty, in many cases, can increase friction during intercourse, giving women more control of vaginal muscles, increasing sexual satisfaction, while also creating a more attractive and appealing appearance to the vaginal area.After the effects you have experienced from childbirth as well as any questions or concerns about your candidacy for vaginal rejuvenation the best thing to do would be to visit a local board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. You will be able to get some more detailed information as to the best procedure to help reach your desired results.
You need to see your gynecologist
Prolapse can give the symptoms you describe, but other conditions can give a similar effect. Any gynecologist with experience will be able to assess you.
Dear Ms NSKIt certainly sounds as though you might have prolapse. Prolapse simply means lack of support and their might be a lack of support of the uterus ( uterine prolapse), bladder ( cystocele), rectum ( rectocele), urethra ( urethrocele) etc......... The best person to evaluate you is NOT a plastic surgeon but instead a person who specializes in vaginal prolapse and this is usually a a gynecologist or urogynecologist. Please choose your surgeon wisely and choose more than one person for an evaluation.

You need an in-person evaluation by a skilled Gyn or "UroGyn..!
The ONLY way you can get a serious answer to your question(s) is a skilled gynecologist or urogynecologist. Both can surgically manage these "prolapses/hernias" from the vagina. However, if you wish an aesthetic surgery that also tightens the vagina and takes your sexuality into account, make certain that your surgeon is adept at "vaginoplasty" and "perineoplasy" in addition to fixing your prolapses...
