This is definitely not an urgent/life threatening problem unless you have cancer of the cervix or uterus. Usually anterior/posterior repair is done if you have prolapse, which is a bulging of the vaginal walls  or uterus (it is like a hernia) It is usually not life threatening unless it affects bladder emptying. If you cannot see the bulging yourself with a mirror while squatting, then it is not significant, and definitely not urgent. You should get a second opinion from a trained urogynecologist before proceeding.
