I personally can't take probiotics as of yet. I had a subtotal in July; I'm left with 2 inches of my large intestine. I see a kinesiologist who also specializes in nutrition; anyway I went to the health food store on my own and started taking probiotics because I used to take them before the surgery and thought that I should again, well I had severe diarrhea, so my nutritionist said no probiotics for now. I can eat yogurt but it is a greek yogurt, very low in fiber and very high in protein.
I don't know if this helps but this is just my situation :)
