a brother is indeed of this answer as he has asked me this question.

please help me on my dillema and tell me how many fast and other acts i must do to repent for my sins.

Answer
Bismihi Ta’ala

In this situation, one must estimate the approximate amount of times and then make up for it.

Also, one must make sincere repentance to Allah for not keeping up with the oaths they took.

A person should be very cautious in keeping promises.

And Allah knows best.
