I have a carbon fibre road bike that has a problem... Answered

I have a carbon fibre road bike. I accidently grabbed the waterbottle carrier on the downtube. The waterbottle assembly along with the aluminum frame anchors were ripped out. I have been riding for a week without it. With the 2 holes there in the down tube...would there be further fractures or the frame would start cracking if i didn't fill the holes. If I were to fill the holes with silicon or epoxy...would this prevent any stress cracking?
