Re-tare

My apologies for writing in panic again.
it's been 3 weeks since my LIS and recovery has been going well. Last week at the doctors visit he said I'm 80% healed.
Then I got sinus infection and started antibiotics which caused diarrhea so I stopped stool softeners to try and control it. It helped, but then yesterday I finished the antibiotics and didn't get back on the stool softeners. Today I had a hard BM and I could feel the sting of the re tare and now it hurts. Not terribly bad but it never starts terribly bad for me.
So now I'm freaking out that it's going to happen all over again and I'm going to be back in the same situation of crazy pain 24/7.
Is there anyone who had a re-tare after LIS and willing to share their experience? Can it become so bad again? And if it does, what next? Another LIS? Botox?
Honestly I'm traumatized from the experience from that never ending pain and not being able to care for my kids.
My CRS is having a surgery this week amd he is out of office so I have no one to share my panic with.

From what I've read on this forum, after LIS any fissures should heal quickly because the muscle has been loosened. Try not to panic, focus on your healing and you'll get past this stage!
