Brief Answer:
Common after surgery.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

How long it's been operated?

Are you on blood thinners?

This kind of complaints is common after prostate removal by surgery.

You should increase the consumption of water to flush out clots.

Your doctor would already put on medicines to reduce bleeding.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi,

What medicine are you using?

Increase water intake. Generally, a bladder cleavage is done to clear the clots. You can call your doctor if there are ongoing bleeding and unstoppable clots.

Hope I have answered your query.
