Constant prolapse? She eats, poops, and seems ok but sometimes it’s out for days. Iim very curious if it causes pain? And if so what to do?

Prolonged prolapse is not good and shouldn't be allowed. Keep it moist and get him to a vet.

Prolapse happens because of heavy straining - parasites, constipation, stones, etc.

Umm...you refer to the tort as her, but then say it's out for days. Are you not sure if she is a girl? You are probably seeing a penis, which would make him a he.

Any way you could get a pic of it? If it is not a penis, then we need to find out what it is.

Judging from the deformed shell he's not led the healthiest life. Figure out a way to stick on a compress with sugar paste, moist so it doesn't dry out and get him to the vet at your earliest convenience. This tissue prolapse might be life threatening.
