Think it's worthwhile to "repopulate" with probiotics after a colonoscopy?

I know that my GI always says so. After the colonoscopy a yogurt or yogurt drink with probiotics would seem to be a gentle way of getting something back in your stomach and rebuilding the good bacteria.
45 years old. Diagnosed with moderate to severe Crohn's in April 2005. Hiatus hernia diagnosed in 2008. Had Crohn's under control until March last year when I had a major flare up and ended up in hospital. Diagnosis is now CD and IBS. Getting it under control again.
Currently taking: Salofalk 2000 mg, Nexium, Calcium and Vitamin D, Matamucil, Yogurt for probiotics, Salofalk suppositories as needed.
