In brief: You can treat it!

It depends on what kind of treatment you received - surgery, radiation and/or hormonal therapy.
Some degree of ed occurs right after prostatectomy. If the nerve-sparing technique is used, recovery from ed may occur within the first year post surgery. Treatment options for ed post prostate therapy include: -oral medication -intracavernous injection therapy -vacuum assisted device -penile implant.

In brief: Perhaps

Erectile dysfunction is common in men over the age of 50.
With prostate cancer treatments erectile dysfunction may occur or worsen. Time will often improve erections after surgery however other aids such as medicines, vacuum erection devices, penile injections, or prostheses may help.
