Hey Pux:  I'm no doctor, but I'm wondering if you are not getting enough oxygenated blood to your penis?  Are you taking Viagra or another ED drug to increase the blood circulation down there?
BTW --  you should be stimulating your penis manually (or whatever way you can get it stimulated) on a regular basis as well.
I'm sure it's nothing serious, but I would call my doc if I were you.
Regards,
Tom

Thanks PianoMan

No I am not on any meds. The doc gave me 8 viagara tablets, to be divided in quarters and take one quarter per day  when I had my catheter removed 14 days post op but did not advise to get more and I don' see him again til Mar 3.

Pux: Give your doc a call anyway. If your hospital is like City of Hope, where I was operated on, they will have triage nurses who can answer your question or hook you up personally with your surgeon. It's the least they should do -- to talk you about the situation. There's no reason for you to wait until March 3rd.
And I'm surprised your surgeon didn't give you a prescription for Viagra, along with the few samples.
Have a list of any other questions or concerns you may have ready when you call.
Best of luck,
Tom
