Hello, Im like 36 and have had IBS for about 10 yrs now. Its under controll right now, and I dont worry much. I work in a collision repair/ bodyshop, and if I gotta "go", there is a bathroom near by. However...the work has changed, cars arent being painted like they use to be, and Im gonna get out of the field. I have always wanted to be a heavy equipment operator (run a bulldozer), but my biggest fear is getting up real early in the morning, getting out on the job and having to make several trips to the.......nearest tree? At the bodyshop, it was no problem, bathroom was right there, but out in the open there isnt always one near by. Is there anyone here who does this kind of work and also has IBS? If so, how do ya deal with it? Take a bunch of Peto Bismos every morning to stay constipated? I wish there was a timer for the bowels that could be programmed to have all bathroom visits at nite time. Someone please...I need advice! eyes

Are you going to be working on private land--like clearing for a person's house--or are you going to be part of a whole construction crew? Because big crews working on the road or commercial property or a big housing development always have port-a-toliets. Most land-clearing people need for personal use is something that can be done rather quick, so if you can keep it in for an hour or two, you might can do it. If it's a job you're going to be on for several days, rent yourself a port-a-toliet for the duration. They'll deliver it, set it up and then come and take it away again. If it's going to be there a while, you can contract to have it cleaned out. They're really not bad if they are cleaned frequently or not used by many people (we rent them a lot doing medieval reenactment events because we usually need more toliets than is at the campstite; they're not terribly expensive). Or, I have heard of people who have an SUV or truck with camper top putting a small toliet in there to use. You can get them at camping stores for $100 or less, plus your chemicals. We used to have one in our pop-up camper. They can be emptied out in your toliet at home.
