OK, I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but... here goes...
I developed a lactose intolerance several years ago (after my UC diagnosis). I could eat a bit of dairy every day, but not very much. It got worse while I was pregnant, and I was unable to eat any dairy without taking a Lactaid pill along with it. So... fast forward...
I had my son 12 weeks ago. Since my delivery, I have been able to eat any and all dairy, as much as I want, without any side effects! Seriously, no gas, diaarhea or headaches. Last night, I ate three scoops of ice cream without any trouble!
Have any of you seen your lactose intolerance disappear? This is the strangest thing. I plan to email my GI about it, too, but thought I would also see if any of you had any theories.
