History of sciatic nerve attack. Slow to pass urine, passing less urine. Prostate problem?

Hi Am 61yrs old, am 1.8m tall, I weigh 79kg. I have no major medical history other than a lower back problem which manifested itself through a sciatic nerve attack that paralized my right leg with devastating pain. Am okay now except for some numbness on my knee area. My question is on the prostate . How do you know that you have a prostate problem and when is it necessary to have it removed through surgery and what are the consequences of such surgery, i.e. inability to have an erection? At the moment I pass urine although it is a bit slow in coming out especially if I wake up from sleep and go to pee. During the day time it is better but I tend to pass less urine than I expect.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if the prostrate enlarged then the prime complain is urgency of urine, force of urination reduced, this is the clinical symptoms but the best way to confirmed this is ultrasonography test and urine follow test, these confirms the diagnosis, there is no much risk in surgery, hope this information helps you have nice day.
