Looking forward to hearing about the codes but it might also help to
describe where you are running your Prius and typical daily use.

From what I have gathered over a few years of posts in the Yahoo forum is
that a failing main battery shows up as increasing ICE run time, if
anything.

The hybrid system has its own rules for the battery state of charge, and it
will rarely allow the battery to get very full in normal use. If it gets
down to one bar on the display when idling then you may have a problem,
otherwise it sounds like it is doing its job.
