I suffered a severe 3rd degree tear 4 months ago and waiting for repair surgery. Can anyone tell me what to expect?

Hi. I am a first time mom and 4 months ago had a beautiful baby boy and he came so fast that I tore. Not only did I tear but my stitches burst open a few days later. I went to the emergency and they said as bad as it is to let time heal and bed rest. Well not only could I not sit but the pain was so bad! When I finally saw my doctor 3 months after my tear she said that she would apply silver nitrate. she did that twice and it didn't do a thing to close up my wound. also when I lay on my back it feels as though everything from the inside out is pulling down towards the anus and sometimes I bleed. Nothing feels right! I saw my doctor this week and she said my scar tissue on the perineum is too tight and will have surgery next month. I told her the muscles don't feel right. Well I assume it's that since it hurts on the inside as well. I feel so deformed down there and in so much pain that I feel alone. I don't know of anyone else who has gone through this. Anyone on here been through this? Also what should I expect? I am just so down :(
