Keri, be thankful you don't have to continually take probiotics. I do. For people with unexplained IBS, like me, it is a bit harder to control our bowels. I think for members who have IBS due to no gall bladder, like yourself, it might be a little easier to stay away from probiotics.
I have been taking probiotics every day for over a year now... it has made a great difference in my life so I feel no need to stop taking them.
