The gut pain should calm rather quickly, usually weeks. It took me almost a year to feel better..but then you have to consider accidental ingestion of gluten from time to time that throws you back/ off track…Every ingestion of gluten takes a few days to react and get over your initial symptoms and then around 2 weeks to heal after that. The diet is tricky and it takes a while to learn, so assume it is going to be a few steps up, and then a few back for a while.
The safest way to start the diet is to eat whole foods and then slowly add in/try new things. Avoid lactose in the beginning as well (no villi tips= decreased lactase production).
Good luck, Happy Healing! and welcome to the club!
