sex painful for husband after hysterectomy

It has been over 8 weeks since my surgery and during sex my husband says it feels like he is hitting something rough that hurts him as well as hurting me. I am freaking out thinking maybe the dr used the wrong kind of stitches or something crazy like that. I have an appointment next week but I am very concerned.

Yes, this is concerning but hopefully, is nothing serious and easily remedied (e.g., stitches that did not dissolve need to be cut/removed). If you had a repair using mesh, it could be the mesh which could be a bigger problem. Please let us know what you find out. Be aware though that surgeons are sometimes remiss in admitting their mistakes.
