In brief: Possibly

Erectile dysfunction following prostate cancer surgery is due to multiple factors including damage to nerves, blood vessel dysfunction, etc.
Ed can be worsened if hormone ablation is required for recurrent disease also leading to low libido. If you have failed oral therapy, vacuum device, then intracavernosal injection therapy (caverject) may help. See your urologist to discuss further.

In brief: E.D. After prostatec

Unless you try you will never know.
It is worth the trial. Remember it has to be prescribed and usually by the urologist. First injection may be taken in the dr office to teach where to inject and see the dosi- response.
