.I have had two male members of my family that died after prostate operations, but it was some months later... they both had physical problems after the operation... not much of anything before... I have researched, trying to find the mortality rate of the operation, it seems that the only statistics a hospital will use, is if a person dies on the operating table or while in the hospital... I found out, it is not in the interest of doctor's or hospitals to keep records of prostate patients... (It's a business !)
