Return of Nipple Sensation?

How long after surgery did you regain nipple sensation?  I'm 5 1/2 weeks p/o and have NONE.  I did NOT have a FNG, and the left side has healed beautifully.  Responds to cold now, but I feel nothing. lol  Left has some necrosis and I'm stuck doing wet wound care on it for likely a few months yet to see if it will heal or if it will require revision...  :(  I've been reading about tons of women who were hyper sensitive immediately following surgery, but I sure am not one of them...

I'm going on 3 months on the 11th and I'm still not fully there. I had a free nipple graft and it was ultra sensitive at first; it has gone away; but still slightly there. It's different for everyone but surgeons say 6 months to a year

I had nipple sensation on both sides immediately. I thought it wasn't real at first but after a couple days I told my husband the good news.

I'm 9 weeks po today and I'm really no different than when I posted. Lefty is responsive to touch and cold, but zero feeling. Righty is still healing, did not have favorable outcome with appearance or shape, but I can feel it despite the scar tissue I'm forming. So wierd....

Did sensation gradually return and to 100%? I never lost sensation in one nipple and did in the other. It's back about 50% but no changes in a while. I'm wondering if it's going to stay like this and hoping not.
