I had gastroenteritis pretty bad ten days ago and the doctor warned me I'd probably be lactose intolerant for at least a few weeks - I think one of the antibiotics killed off all my intestinal flora. It's uncomfortable, definitely the whole bloating, pain under the ribs thing, and I LOVE DAIRY. I am the yogurt queen! I have a little coffee in my milk! I eat cereal for breakfast! Except now I don't. But it's probably a good diet thing right now anyway, I eat way too much dairy normally. Sigh.

I'm glad it's temporary, but I feel your frustration. I eat yogurt and cottage cheese almost every day, and I remember how irksome it was just to space meals away from an antiobiotic I was taking last fall. I had to switch to morning oatmeal, because there was no way to space out the other meds and food and the non-dairy thing otherwise. :(

Sounds like you're still not feeling that great, so I hope that's over with soon!

Thank you! Discovered last night that aged cheese is OK, so baby steps!

Did s/he say anything about taking probiotics to rebuild that good intestinal flora? I've got a slight lactose intolerance issue, but ever since I started taking probiotics I can tolerate a lot more than I can without them. And this is coming from one of the Greek yogurt queens ;)

And POOP on getting stood up. That sucks. I'm sorry :HUGS:
