My husband had a prostate cancer.In 1995 after X-rays therapy,
his prostate cancer was cured. Until August 2003 his health condition (he is 87 seven year old) was good besides several cystoscopy because of stones in urine bladder. His doctor explained that a stone formation in urine bladder is a result of X-ray
Potential cures would depend on what is causing the prostatic bleeding (i.e. recurrance of the cancer or a mass). If the bleeding continues, there should be consideration for taking the prostate out. It may be that your husband is a poor surgical candidate (thus the urologist saying that no cure exists).
If the bleeding continues, you may want to inquire about a second urological opinion.
Another consideration would be checks for any clotting disorders (i.e. blood count and coagulation studies) that would delay any wound healing.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
