Congrats on taking a huge step to getting control of your health!!! I agree with Keith, things are definitely going to be difficult now. I wouldn't draw any conclusions on what you can and can't eat when healed based on what you're seeing at the moment. I had ileus after surgery and it took a few days before I was able to eat. As for lactose intolerance, was this diagnosed with tests or was it something you noticed over time and testing? If the latter, I would think *maybe* you can eat those things when you're healed. it's possible it was your UC acting up and not lactose intolerance the whole time. Only time will tell. I'd have said I was lactose intolerant prior to surgery, and I eat dairy now without issue. I'd give it time before testing of course!
