Hi ,
you have not mentioned your age.In advanced age , thick endometrium with polyps needs fractional currettage and smear or TCRE ( hysteroscopic resection ).The smear report should come within a week or so.You have mentioned prolapse and lump in vagina , it must be cystocoele or rectocoele ( descent of bladder or rectum ) but without examining one can not say what kind of lump it is.Regarding swelling in the leg and foot can be due to pressure symptoms and several other causes , it is better to wait for the result of smear.
Best wishes,
Take care
