Pressure in vagina/rectum after diverticulum surgery?

Hi everyone, I recently (three weeks ago) had surgery to repair a urethral diverticulum. Since the surgery things have been fine, but for the last week I've noticed some shooting pains when I readjust, and a pretty much constant feeling of "heaviness" in the front and back of my vagina and my rectum. It feels like I'm going to the bathroom or bearing down and I have to tighten up my Kegel muscles to feel normal. I'm concerned there might have been some kind of prolapse or something, but I've also been having some IBS symptoms lately (nausea, bloating, gas), so it might be related to that too. It feels like the surgery site might be a little swollen.

If it helps, I started smoking a couple of cigarettes a day about 5 days ago to help with my finals (I'm in school). I've quit since I noticed I felt more pain afterward, but would this have changed anything?

Thanks, everyone.
