Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your father who is 82 years old has recently undergone surgery for prostate mostly trans Urethral Resection of Prostate.(TURP).
Though it is endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery it is a major surgery at this age.
There is a raw area created after resection of the prostate which irritates the rectum and urethra leading to loss of control over bowel and urination.
This takes 6 weeks for complete healing of the prostatic fossa.
Do not worry give him antibiotics and anti cholenergic medication like oxybutinine for 2-3 weeks along with vitamin supplements He will recover slowly .
