You have a cracked cylinder head or block

hopefully it is just a headgasket.

I don't think the oil in the coolant has anything to do with the fuse. I suspect the people that did the work damaged a wire or connection while changing the coolant. Also the oil may actually be transmission fluid since the transmission fluid is cooled in the radiator....a crack in the transmission cooler would leak into the coolant. I would take it to a different shop and have it looked at again and they may also find the blown fuse problem
