anal sphincter repair/rectovaginal fistula/anal fistula

Hi this is my first post,
Two weeks ago I underwent an anal sphincter repair as well as a rectovaginal fistula repair .
I had a fourth degree tear at the birth of my second baby 9 mths ago and as a result of this needed this surgery.However a small hole appeared to one side of my back passage and I got this looked at by the registrar in the Hosp and was told it would probably heal on its own and not to come back unless more complications.I was put on antibiotics.Two days later the hole is bigger and there is both fecal matter and thread from surgery coming out of this hole.I am now presuming I have an anal fistula.Has anybody experienced this after an anal sphincter repair?Any advice support ,comments would be welcome I am a bit overwhelmed with it all.
