If you have lactose intolerance, how long does it take to feel better after stopping eating dairy products?

My doctor thinks I might be lactose intolerant and has told me to stop eating dairy products for a few weeks. 10 days in things are as bad or worse as when I was eating milk/cheese/etc. (For me, this means lack of appetite, stomach & intestine pain and cramps, gas, and diarrhea.)
It would be helpful for me to get a sense of other people's experience of this: once you stop eating milk products, how long does it take for you to feel better?
