Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Every patient does not need surgery / Every patient is not fit for surgery / many can not afford...
There always are some alternatives -
So is your father's case - may be, he can benefit from blood thinners / Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters and so on.
Discuss with your doctor

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
