Irritation of Penis from hysterectomy scarring

An_249642 posted:
I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago and my husband just recently told me that 3 months after the surgery when we began intercourse again, the internal scarring from the surgery would scratch his penis. He now says he no longer feels any discomfort during sex. My question is is this internal scarring normal and how long does it take for it to heal?

Internal scarring is normal because the vagina has to be sewn shut. Refraining from intercourse for the recommended time (usually 6 weeks) is considered adequate for healing. But scar tissue can take much longer to "flatten" and "smooth out." You've probably had some scars over the years that have become less "bumpy" and more faint over the years. I assume it would be the same for this scar - gradual improvement over time.
