Any time someone has a catheter, he/she is susceptible to a bladder or kidney infection. Fortunately in today's world of anti-biotics, it is a fairly low risk side effect. There is such a wide range of drugs, that it depends on the doctors preference.
WBC or white blood cells are present in an infection as the body is fighting it. The RBC are part of blood, which is usually present for a time after a prostatectomy. The protiens can result from the kidney nit functioning as well because of the infection.
Overall, I would say this will be fine. He should recover easily and be able to continue to deal the other side effects of surgery. How is his continence. That is the next big hurdle to conquer.
Good luck and have a wonderful Christmas with your Dad.
