Not necessary: After you have restored your gut to a normal state and you don't have any further gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, cramps, etc., probiotics are not known to confer additional benefits. It would have been prudent to use them while taking the antibiotics but if you stopped the antibiotics more than a week ago, they will offer little benefit.

Any: You can simply help to repopulate your intestinal flora by eating non-pasteurized yogurt. This contains lactobacilli. If you had taken probiotics or yogurt while using therapy for h. Pylori it would have also killed the bacteria in the probiotic.
