I started taking a probiotics because one of my biggest complaints now is stinking gas. I asked my GI about
them and he said it couldn't hurt and just might help. It has seemed to make a difference. I still have gas but at least I'm not clearing the room anymore. I asked him about
it since I never had that problem before my resection, when my CD was out of control but have it now while I'm suppose to be in remission. I thought it was from the meds I was taking and he said it was more likely from only having half a colon. Just for your FYI.
