I am flying there end of this month and obviously out of there on the way back.  Someone casually mentioned to me "have fun with that, the bathrooms are so far from the gates.)  Obviously, I started freaking.  I am a fearful flyer on top of crohns and "go" a ton when I fly, often right before boarding.  I have since learned rather than making a mad dash, I can board, and use the airplane bathroom while everyone is stowing their carry ons.  Anyway I just looked at the online map for my terminal and I see 3 restrooms and it doesn't look that far but I obviously don't know if the map is drawn to scale.  I did notice a lot of major airlines flying out of that terminal so maybe it will be more crowded then I anticipated. 
 
Any experiences?
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Actually...none that I recall. But whenever I flew LAX...I was in remission or didn't have the activated Crohns gene or something. Once upon a time...we were all normal. Anyhow, I found that generally you're close to the bathrooms...not super close but you just have to sort of look around to find them all. They ARE there though.
27/f/CD. 4 CD related surgeries: 2 resections, 2 JP drains, 3 NG tubes, many absesses (including the one my most recent surgery scraped off my ovary) and fistulas.
Currently trying to figure out hip and knee joint pain.
Have lost in these surgeries: appendix, 8 in. intestine, R fallopian tube, gallbladder, 10 in. intestine
Crohns Dx'd: February 2008.
Pentasa (and much mental screaming)

Trying to hang in there until January so I'll have some insurance and can visit a rheumy, neuro, GI, primary, pain control, and possibly a shrink so I could stop crying and living in my own lil pity party. :-P

fly in and out of there on Delta at least 3 times a year...never had a problem...the bathrooms are pretty much the same as in any airport....no where to be found when you really need it and everywhere when you don't.

truthfully they are pretty much in easy reach from just about any point

Southwest is great for us. Pick your own seats. No one ever wants to sit in back anyway, I sit like right next to the door.
SCD since 01, remission since 01, occasional Arby's breaks :)
