Total hysterectomy done, vaginal cuff opened due to infection. Will it heal and can have sex?

I had a total hysterectomy 7 weeks ago and had vaginal cuff open last week with infection. I had a ct which showed no abcess but thickened vaginal cuff. I am worried it may never heal and i would never be able to have sex again. Is that possible? that they would close it up permentaly and can it open up again even years later?
