I take Primal Defense probiotic. I started it after glancing at ****** *****'s book,(haven't read the whole thing yet) and decided it had to be the best one on the market. My doctor says that probiotics are completely safe to take, so I don't think you can do any harm to your surgery wound by starting it. Ask your doctor though. Supposedly they just help with digestion by keeping the good and bad bacteria in balance.
At first I swore that Primal Defense cured my symptoms of Crohn's, because the pains stopped within 4 days of starting it. But my doctor believes that it was a coincidence, as my prescription medication was "kicking in" about the same time. (I was about 6 weeks into the prescription meds.)
I have since stopped taking the Primal Defense, just to see if there is any difference, and to be honest, I can't really tell. I think maybe it was helping a little bit, and I will probably try taking them again soon, to continue my experiment.
There is another one called Flora Q, (I think) that is supposed to be good.
Not a direct answer, but I hope it helps a little bit.
