Hi @voodoo5500 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll notice that I moved your message to this recent discussion. I did this so you can meet other members like @klaken @ken82 @dmadi61 and @john57 talking about sexual function post treatment for prostate cancer.

You ask a good question. What can you do to reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction as you heal after surgery?

While we wait for others to weigh in, you might find this article from the Prostate Cancer Foundation useful:

Would like to join this group. I had radical prostectomy, 44 photon intensive radiation treatments, and two full years of Lupron injections.
I lost libido and muscle. I have confusion, depression, and hot flashes. Now, my left shoulder has quit working. Sex is only a memory. I am 74, go senior classes, and trying to write a book about my experience to keep me mentally sharp.
