Thanks for the query.

According to what you have said, your father is not having any other chronic disorders. Before surgery, pre-operative investigations would be done. As you have mentioned that those have been done, and if the test reports were pretty normal, it would not harm to undergo the surgery. As for the side effects of surgery, it depends on the type and extent of the surgery involved.
Hope I have answered your query. If any further clarification is required, please feel free to ask. Thank you.
