In brief: Depends on surgery

Many men have all sorts of surgeries, and afterwards have no problems with erections.
Your question does not mention the type of surgery, but some prostate surgeries do have impotence as a side effect. Please send in another question to healthtap, with some details so that our medical experts can better help you. Thanks!
