    No, I dont think hell die from a (seemingly) routine opertion- itll just make life WAY more comfy for him!

    The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions.

    It's a prostate op. They are fairly routine and he will have been assessed before hand to make sure that he is fit for surgery. Thousands of over 80s have operations yearly, so it's nothing unusual.

    Whilst general anaesthetic does carry a risk, how often do you hear of someone dying from this? Now think of how many operations are carried out yearly... There is a miniscule risk.

    As for his prostate, this is one of the main cancers in men, so if it isn't cancerous now, it's a good time to have the op.

    You watch he'll be fine.
