  • 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.
