In brief: Fistula?

This needs professional evaluation.
It could be a rectovaginal fistula, i.e. an abnormal connection between the vagina and rectum. This is more likely if the vaginal blood smells or looks like it might be mixed with feces. See either your personal physician or, perhaps best, the surgeon who treated you 2 years ago. Good luck!
