In brief: ED
Erectile dysfunction following radical prostatectomy is not necessarily a certainty.
There are, however, no neurosurgical procedures for revitalizing nerves damaged during radical prostatectomy.

In brief: Nerve grafts
Urologists have been studying nerve grafts (when the nerve bundles need to be removed) at the time of radical prostatectomy for over 13 years.
Only a small number of patients seem to benefit. If you have already had the procedure, then you are not a candidate and you should speak with urologist about alternative treatments fro erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction occurs in up to 80% of men who have Davinci radical robotic prostatectomy.

In brief: Consult
Difficulty with erection is a recognised side effect of radical prostate surgery.
There is no way to go and 'reconnect' all nerves. Discuss options with your urologist.
