Do you have alot of trees around your septic field? Or you could have a pluged vent pipe. I would get the tanked pumped out again. If for the first day or two your drains work normal then stop working you have a pluged field, or you have crushed field pipe. Has anyone drove over your drain field. Pump your tank then go from there.
Good luck

Have the line to the tank cleaned out 1st, then pump out tank 2nd if needed, sounds like the line is plugged to the tank.
