I will assume that your Father never had a problem with his kidneys or urinary tract, including the bladder. Most likely the bleed is a result of the placement of a foley catheter to collect urines during surgery. You Father probably was also taking anti-platelet agent(s) before surgery, because of his coronary artery disease problem, which increases the chance of bleeding. However, he should have a urine test a couple of weeks after surgery, to make sure that the "blood in urine" problem is resolved, otherwise he should discuss the problem with his internist, or see a urologist.
