Postpartum. Problem with bowel movements.

Patient : I had a baby 3weeks ago. Ventouse delivery, i had to be cut and have stitches. I was slighty anemic before delivery, lost about 400 units of blood. Yesturday or the day before, cant quite remember. I had a lot of pain passing stool. Not much was passing, i was on the toilet for ages. I had a lot of pain which felt like passing glass and i'm still a bit sore. When i wiped there was a fair bit of tar like black-dark brown in colour maybe even slightly green. It also smelt horrible. Today i attempted to go toilet but it hurt so much that im trying to not go anymore. Any ideas what is wrong with me? I really worried and its very painful.
