It is not uncommon to have hyper sensitivity of the nipples for 2-3 months after surgery. It is not typical to have significant pain so long after surgery as you have described. You could certainly try desensitization by massage and light touch exercises. You should check in with your surgeon though to make sure that it is not something else, like capsule contracture.
