I had an indigo prolapse about 15 years ago. I believe it was severely inbred; it's sibling was a dwarf. It did not have a kink tail. The vet could do nothing and the prolapsed tissue became necrotic. We euthanized the snake.
Your indigo's prolapse is not nearly as severe. Please keep us informed on its progress.
You do bring up an interesting topic, the selling of kink tailed indigos. If these kinks are simply the result of incubation temperatures, then it is not a big deal. However, if the kinked snakes are genetically weaker from inbreeding, they should not be sold in my opinion. They may have other physical problems which do not appear for some time. I certainly did not know mine was a dwarf until it was several months old. It ate voraciously, but just grew stout.
