Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.
I can understand your worry !

At the age of 55 and diabetes, infections can worsen the kidney function and hence need dialysis.
Urinary infections can occur due to obtstruction of the urinary tract by prostate or stones.
Prostate enlargement is usually non- cancerous (called BEP), though cancer can occur. PR exam and USG, PSA levels can detect that.

Prostate surgery for what?
depends on causes.
Risks also depend on causes, co- existing diseases like kidney failure, diabetes, heart problems.common complications are bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding structures etc. endoscopic surgery is without external stitches.
Open surgery is needed in select cases and needs anaesthesia and gets stitches.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
Hope I have answered all your questions. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this answer.

Thank you and Good luck!
