Dear VIC
Thanks for your questions.
As you know there are not many sure things in this world.  
By approximately two months following such surgery, incontinence that is going to spontaneously resolve will have done so. Likewise, urine maximum perceived urine flow will have been achieved. Scarring within the urethra or prostate can take years to be obvious. Most men do not have stress incontinence after TURP unless the urinary sphincter was damaged (rare).  Urge incontinence is  more common but especially in patients who have concurrent bladder instability, possibly due to long standing prostatic blockage.  These men are usually treated well with bladder anti-spasm medications.    85% of men are satisfied with their results and most are able to urinate much better than before the operation.
More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its urban campuses by calling  (1 800 653 6568). We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need. Please bring any physicians
