Lack of sensation in Nipple Area

I am now about 8 weeks post op and more than pleased with my new breasts.  However, I am concerned about the nipple area of both breasts because I have minimum sensation.  When touched the nipple area does become erect quickly but I am worried that the sensation will not return.  In reading the doctor blogs they say that this could take time but there are a small percentage of people who, after BR surgery, do not have any sensation in their nipple area. I would very much apppreciate hearing from others who may experienced something similar in their recovery Thank you so very much.

I am 1 month post op and have no sensation in this area from day one. It's to early to know if it would change.

Btw my doctor said it's normal in the beginning, so we just need to give it some time...

Update- In the past week i'm starting to feel pain every time my nipples gets hard. It's a new feeling to me so I guess it means that I got some sensitivity back.
