Well, I picked up some probiotics at GNC yesterday.  They didn't have Primadolphilus Reuteri so I bought an acidopholous one?  I'll keep an eye out for the PR and possibly buy it online if I must.  Anyhow, so far so good....but it seems to me I have seen improvement because I increased my Gas-X plls from twice/day to 3/xs.  I was able to get more sleep last night, have had less trips to the bathroom today AND my last BM was getting firmer! 
I also have gone to the bathroom twice this afternoon, and all I did was tinkle!  Wheee!
Hey, I know we all get excited about firmer deposits and less time in the bathroom.  Certainly improving MY day!

UC is pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.

Hi 78 - congrats on the changes! Research shows benefits including reduction of inflammation from several Lactobacillus and Bifidobacter species. I don't know the story on PR, but the name sounds like it is a commercially identified and promoted species. There are a large number of species, so a new one is not really impossible.

Gachrons, you made me LOL! "you go less" THAT was GREAT!

This afternoon I was able to follow Hubby to the next town/back to return a vehicle to a friend. We even stopped on the way home to pick up lunch. I'm getting braver, I tell ya!
*I still warned him; drive, drop it off, hand over keys, no visiting, lets get right back home. And we did.*

Does anyone know if the gas will reduce after having been on the probiotics for a while? I'll keep taking the Gas-X, but I really don't want to be dependent upon it. I didn't really have a problem with gas before (not like THIS was being) and it didn't start until 9-10wks after surgery and specialist put me back on 6MP that my symptoms returned along with this explosive gas.

I take Probiotics and I truly believe they do help.
