Hi mochapj: Some blood, tiny clots and scabs can be expected so soon after surgery and cath. removal.
I wound up with a bout of passing big clots and heavy bleeding at four weeks post-op, which I was told was "somewhat unusual, but not uncommon." I'm sure your dad is fine -- BUT -- you should probably call your surgeon, if only for reassurance. He or she may even want to see the urine to determine how much blood is in it.
