I think you will just have to go with the flow on this one. There are so many possibilities:
DS will never ask to nurse again after the baby is born.
DS will ask and not be able to latch.
DS will ask and be able to latch but decide he doesn't want to anymore.
DS will ask, be able to latch and wean shortly after.
DS will ask, be able to latch and want to nurse constantly.
DS will ask, be able to latch and nurse occasionally for quite a while longer.
and so on...
You can always be open to the idea of him nursing and just wait and see. You could also let him try to nurse *now* and see if it still causes pain/if he is actually still interested/etc...
