Hi,

The effects of RP on orgasm usually are evident within the first year after surgery, though there are some patients who have it later. For radiation, the condition tends to worsen over time. For your case, if the cause is the radiation, then you would expect it to worsen.

Sadly this is an understudied aspect related with treatment, there are no specific therapies recommended as to dysfunction after surgery and another recommendation for dysfunction after radiation. Most patients are advised medications like viagra, some also explore some psychological therapies. It would be wise to discuss these things with your doctor.
