Ok so exactly 6 weeks ago I got sick and tested positive for norovirus 2 weeks later. It took me forever to feel better and I've been having loose stools once or twice a day. Today I had full blown diarrhea about two hours after having a yogurt. I'm worried because I'm going on vacation in two weeks and want to be better. Has this happened to anyone else? Do you think it's possible that lactose intolerance after a virus could last this long?

Yogurt in general should be good, unless its mixed with other things.
Its nothing to do with lactose intolerance, if you been able to tolerate it before.
Lactose breath test takes out the guess work. ;-) Many adults are having some intolerance anyway since we are not babies anymore in need to digest lactose via lactase, hence produce less lactase in gut mucosa.
(you can also test lactase activity directly in a colon biopsy, but that's gone a bit far.)
All the best,
watching what you eat and how you react will also tell you a lot of some aftermaths. Some virus damage can go as long as a year.
