Hi, I am Pradeep from Bangalore, India. My father is 65 and he was a very healthy person till he was 63. Never had any major health related problem. But 2 years (Oct 2008) back he had to undergone surgery at a Urology hospital at Shimoga to remove the stone formation over the prostate gland. He was quite ok after the surgery for 1.5 years and fell ill for few weeks later (Feb 2009). After the initial diagonsis and urine test doctor told it is urine infection and gave some tablets. But after 2 months (April 2010) one night he found problem urinating and severe pain while trying. He was admited to Apollo hospital in Bangalore immediately. After prior scanning and other tests, he underwent surgery to remove blood clots in the urinary passage. He was kept under examination for 2 days and discharged later. After a week, again he found this problem and underwent similar surgery and cleared the blood clots. After study, the pattern would be like constipation and followed by blood in urine and then clots. These two surgeries has brought his confidence level to minimum and has been over cautious since then. Last month (Oct 2010) he had similar experience (Constipation, blood clots in urine and burning sensation) and went to hospital. Doctor did scanning, urine test and some other test and prescribed few medicines and didnt tell any thing else. Upon asking as why the bleeding, he didn't reveal anything and just asked to continue with the medicine.
Even today my father is having this kind of seizures and have no clue as what is causing the bleeding. After doing study in internet, now I am worried that could it got to do anything with Prostate cancer? Kindly help me by providing your views on this.
