shortened vigina(vagina) due to hysterectomy

I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy July 18th. I've read that the surgery itself will include the shorteneing of the vigina (vagina). they say it can cause painful intercourse. how much will  it be shortened and do they perform this proceedure at every hyterectomy? what ar the chances that I will not be able to have sex again?

Everything should be just fine. All of the women that I have talked to have said that they don't notice any changes in sexual relations. Some even state that it is improved! Good luck with your surgery.
