Pushing it a little: A wound usually regains 50% of tissue strength after 6 weeks which is considered the bare minimum amount of time to wait before sex after even minor vaginal wound repairs. You may be being a little optimistic after a hysterectomy. Your surgeon is the one to tell you when it is safe to resume penetrative intercourse or masturbation. In the meantime, clitoral stimulation is perfectly fine.
