Regular Bleeding with Post Anal Fistula surgery

I had anal fistula surgery 3 1/2 months ago.  The surgery was successful but the doctor who performed the procedure, stated it was deeper than he thought, but it should heal fine.  I am a Type 1 diabetic and have been so for 30 years. Recently in the last two weeks, I have been having an excessive amount of bleeding when I sit down on the toilet.  When I go the bathroom and right after, a lot of blood drains from the hole that is still present where the fistula was cut open. I see the dark and then lighter red blood and the entire toilet fills up.  It can take anywhere from 8-10 minutes to stop bleeding. I  understand that being diabetic I would heal slower, but is this normal? Should I have so much bleeding 3 1/2 months after the surgery? It has not bleed like this since pre-surgery and I just don't understand what is wrong.  Please help.
Thank you.
