Welcome to ehealthforum.
The sensation might take some more time to come back. It is good that her libido is not diminished after surgery. The loss of sensation could be due to damage to the nerves supplying the area. It takes some time to heal back. She should get a repeat check done by her treating gynecologist. If the sensations do not come back within 6 months from the surgery, then she should consider getting a check done with neurologist to rule out any severe injury. Nerve conduction studies will help to look for the cause for sensation loss.
Consider starting her on multivitamin supplements with nerve stimulants to help with better recovery.
