Question:Why does sex hurt after a total hysterectomy?

I was previously diagnosed with Endometriosis and after about 5 or 6 years of completely disabling pain finally opted to have a total hysterectomy. While the pain from endo. is gone, I still have pain during intercourse. My question is this... have any of you had the same kind of problem and if so, is this normal? Have you found any positions that may not hurt as much as others or am I just destined to be a 26 yr. old woman going through menopause with no sex life??!! Please let me know if any one out there is feeling my frustration!
