My husband and I are having issues with erectile dysfunction after his prostectomy. Injections don't work, cialis doesn't work, viagra doesn't work. We need something to work. He's frustrated and worried. I love him unconditionally. Is there someone we can go and talk to!!! Anyone else having this problem> The docor says there is no nerve damage from the surgery.

How long has it been since the surgery? If not that long, seek out an ED rehab protocol at a major institution; or copy a protocol from a major institution and follow it.
You might have misunderstood what your doctor said. The doctor likely meant that he was able to spare the nerves after surgery. All prostate surgery traumatizes (damages) the nerves. Nerves will heal and bounce back, but they are slow growing and it takes time.
Read this book for background information; it is about ED after surgery:
“Saving your Sex Life” by John Mulhall, MD
