Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Radical prostatectomy can be followed by erectile dysfunction as nerves passing by are very close. But if nerves are intact, it should not affect much, sex therapy and use of pills help cover. Consult a sex therapist and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

Prostate cancer is common in men over 50 years of age, with the risk of developing prostate cancer increasing with aging. Certain populations are at increased risk for developing prostate cancer, particularly African-Americans and men with a father or brother diagnosed with prostate cancer at a younger age.
