A lot has already been posted. Do look after yourself.
Some other ideas: Is there a local prostate support group ? face to face can help. Wifes / partners are often affected more.
May I ask, how old is partner (is he 42 ?) and how did he cope with biopsy and all the 'associated' procedures to date ?
I realise OCD presents itself it so many ways. You yourself do need to be fully informed in my humble opinion about RP and after care. Lots of things spring to mind .. Will hubby cope with a 'std' ward and procedures ? I had an over night stay and after care was my by wife. Yes I was mobile and able to cook etc. however you need to have a urine bag for at least a week, you are 'sluggish' / tender. Physical body recovering takes circa 2 months at least.
He shouldn't drive post op. Check Insurance and recommendations. I found it difficult to get in / out car for a couple of weeks (as passenger). All the 'mundane' things ! Have you got help with 'youngster's' , does husband work etc ? What friend/ neighbour / relative support structure do you have ? Reading this I'm more concerned about yourself in many ways.
Feel free to post / ask questions , voice concerns. As you can see by Chris J post and others; we are here to help as much as we are able from our experiences. The journey you are both taking (and children) will be unique and nothing is certain. From what info. you have posted, this is very early stage PC. There are different types of surgery I assume you know, all will effect bladder control and sexual functioning, you need to ask about nerve sparing. Post op; No semen is produced (as glands removed). There's a lot of information to absorb. Do take it steady and look after yourself.
Further to your other comment : The post op checks are minimal in actual time ; 'just' 2 minute blood tests at wherever location at 6 wks post op and then quarterly for 2 years. Each bridge can only be crossed as you come to it as you know.
