In brief: No, but . . .

Prostatectomy shouldn't affect libido or sex drive b/c testosterone levels shouldn't be affected.
For that matter, his relationship w/his partner, worries about money, job, family/friends, etc shouldn't change, nor his overall health, eg diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, depression, or lifestyle choices, eg smoking & excess alcohol consumption, shouldn't change, thus sex drive should be same.
