A 31-year-old female asked:

with a slight lactose intolerance issue, if you ate 3 ice cream sandwiches in one evening after having dairy at dinner that night, could you still feel the effects of that intolerance the next day with bloating, gas, pain & more bowel movements?

Yes: It takes up to 3 days for material you ingest to work its way through your gut. Such symptoms would be expected if you consumed dairy to that extent. The intolerance might speed the material trough a bit faster.
