...would it make you ill?

I feel so, so stupid asking this and I'm almost certain the answer is 'No,' but I'm a hypochondriac.

I've been vegan for about 4 months now and have no cravings for animal products, and don't intend to go back to an omnivore diet.

HOWEVER...this week I'm going (long story, but you can trust me that not going is not an option) to a restaurant for a family occasion. I've phoned them to ask whether they could accommodate vegans, and they said they could adapt a couple of dishes. So my plan is to order vegan, or as close-to-vegan as possible. I cannot do any better than that.

My question (honestly, I'm getting there!) is: what if I get a dish with small amounts of animal product in, or in the worst case scenario I have to eat an ovo-lacto vegetarian dish? Aside from feeling uncomfortable because I'd really rather not eat it - would there be any discernible physical effects?

Can you become lactose intolerant/other animal product intolerant after following a vegan diet for some time?

Again, my apologies for asking this question. And again, I really have no control over the choice of restaurant/the menu/whether I eat dinner or not. This is a question about what would happen if I absolutely had to settle for the ovo-lacto option.

Yes, it will. I just ate a dairy product on accident after only a month of veganism and I was feeling sick so I looked it up, I'm a hypochondriac too but I haven't left my toilet in over an hour. Sorry for that graphic image.
