Possible: All the above conditions are due to weakness of fascia as in hernia , pelvic muscles in cystocele. If you have urinary symptoms like retention , frequency or in continence or bulging in vagina you may have it, speak to your gyn doctor to check for it.

Prolapse bladder: It is possible you have a cystocele, as part of your injury and other life related events. Your regular doc, gyn, or urologist can start the diagnostic process with pelvic exam and then adding ultrasound and /or ct scan. Ask about rectocele as well. Take a friend with you for the visit to help you understand and ask questions.

Possible: You should see a surgeon about your hernias. I would recommend you see someone that can fix them laparoscopically. Your urine symptoms could be attributed to several things. Hernia would not cause an urinary tract infection, but if the bladder is involved in the hernia, there are certain symptoms related to that.

Not likely: You need to talk to your doctor about this but I am not familiar with lifting causing a cystocele.
