J has ice cream EVERY night for a bedtime snack. Doesn't really seem to affect him.

No problems with either of those. Did you have trouble with dairy before?

No problem for me either. I like having ice cream as a bedtime snack too.

I was lactose intolerant before and my output gets that way if I overdose on dairy now. It doesn't stop me from eating it...I just know it's going to happen.

I wasn't eating any dairy at all before surgery -- too much gas/urgency, but I'm tolerating cheese quite well now. I tried a little ice cream and it seemed OK. Milk doesn't appeal to me at all, and it's hard to imagine that I'd be OK with it, as I never was before.

Dairy doesn't seem to impact me in a bad way. Need the milk for the calcium as I'm weaning off steroids.

Maybe try yoghurt.

Yes, hard cheeses and yogurt are lowest in lactose if that's a problem.

My son was not lactose intolerant before UC but now, with his J pouch, if he has one glass of milk everything pours through him. Hmmmmmm....
