Nipple super sensitive/numbness
Hi, i would like to know that how much time does it take to get normal sensitivety if i get it at all :( i think this was biggest mistake in my whole life.. now 5 weeks from my Ba.. both nipples super sensitive and near the incisions numbness. I just want my old feeling back. Im getting so frustrated that thinking to go explantion. I would like to know that does the feeling go also after expantion?
Really really need help :( thank you
SarahF Sorry for the delay!
Everyone is a little different but it may take 3 months or longer...
Tiny little unnamed nerves get cut and stretched with any surgery. Best case scenario, in a lab when every variable is controlled, it takes 1 mm a day for them to heal. So that's 3 cm a month. It will get better though. If your nipple sensation is making you totally nuts (and from post sounds like it's close!), you can try Neurontin. I like to start with 100mg night time and ramp up to 600 mg a day. Ask your surgeon. It wouldn't be a lifetime but can control nerve pain as you're healing. Best of luck.Reply
