VBAC with Tear

I had a VBAC 3 days ago and ended up with a third degree tear and muscle tear in the anus. I'm taking Ibuprofen, but am still in so much pain and TERRIFIED to go #2. I feel a ton of pressure in that whole area and feel like it's going to drop out my bottom. Any advice, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated--I have a 25 month old at home too, so I'm looking to improve ASAP. TIA.
