Prostrate surgery is very common and very minor surgery by today's standard.Your dad is old but don't worry as prostrate is a common problem in the elderly.Be relaxed and everything will be fine.
General Surgeon Dr. Akshata Powar's  Response
prostate enlargement is common in elderly, it presents with increased frequency of micturition, urgency and hesitancy. initial line of management is medical to shrink the prostate gland; also it is important to do serum PSA in these cases.
surgery for prostate is TURP which is an endoscopic procedure, so patients are comfortable on the first post- operative day itself.

I am 52, 6 feet tall and weigh 160 pounds. I am very active physically for recreation, either walking or cycling. I cycle more in the summer and about a month ago I noticed nonspecific discomfort in the area between my penis and anus while out cycling immediately after having a double espresso...an unusual dosage of caffeine for me. I am a physiotherapy (orthopedics) lecturer who has not practiced in almost 20 years. I have palpated the area and found no specific areas of tenderness or swelling though I have varicosities in my scrotum of long standing. I had the prostate blood test this spring and it was negative and this was the second negative test in the past 4 years. I have also had 2 colonoscopies in the last 15 years, both negative. The discomfort has been consistently mild and can be brought on with a full bladder and prolonged sitting (I just sat in a car for 18 hours over the last 2 days). The best way to describe the symptoms is what I have always referred to as blue balls though orgasm has not relieved this problem. Please advise. Thanks.
