Exclamation Help Help Help For Elderly Mother!!!

I have a 74 year old mother who has a fallen bladder (cystocele). The bladder is actually bulging from her vaginal canal and looks like a balloon. She was told by regular doctor that she needs to see a surgeon and they have given her a referral for 11 days away!!! Isn't this an emergency, when an organ like the bladder is protruding on outside of body? I would think she would need to see someone before 11 days from now and not go around with her bladder hanging out like this. Can anyone help me with this or tell me what she should do?

I'm sure she's seen a doctor by now, but if I were you I would have gone to the emergency room. I hope she's feeling better.
