For the first six weeks after my resections I always followed a low residue diet. Easy to chew, easy to digest. I did that to give my intestines time to heal.
Diet is pretty individual so you are going to have to try to figure out your new normal. Since my resections I have stayed on a modified version of a low residue diet as this agrees with me well.
I see no reason not to be on Probiotics, in fact I never stopped mine. Also after my resection is when I became lactose intolerant. So if you drink milk and get really gassy, bloated and diarrhea, then more than likely you are too. Good luck!
