Gluten here to stay?

I got a letter from my specialist giving me the all clear as far as coeliac goes, meaning the past few days I've reintroduced weet-bix as my breakfast cereal. And, so far, no real ill effects. I may even have a sandwich (gasp!) later in the week.

In theory, I should now be able to eat almost normally, except maybe for milk products. I have to wait until I have more info about the treatment for the problem I do have before I can risk any Coke or beer to celebrate, but things are definitely looking up on the diet front! While I won't actually feel any better until I get some actual medication, at least I can eat things which aren't tuna and rice without having to worry that they'll make me feel worse. Hurrah!
