Sorry to hear about your father's problem.

Bleeding is a common side effect of acitrom and this is an indicator that the dose of actirom is not titrated according to his body's needs. You need to consult your doctor and get him the proper dose of the drug, which keeps his INR in the target range and prevents the bleeding.
Before his prostate surgery, he will have to stop warfarin and he will need to be shifted on heparin for a few days. You can discuss this with your surgeon and he will let you know when to stop the drug before surgery.

hoping for the best.
