Joylu, if your primary problem is gas and/or small amounts of stool or blood, you might try using a sanitary napkin to "catch" any accidents. You'll have to position it slightly differently, but it probably would keep you from an embarrassing show-through until you can get to the bathroom to change. Carry wet wipes with you also.
The rectal pred sounds like a good suggestion. Also, short courses of Pred can provide you with relief without causing many side effects. Also, my GI told me I could take up to four Imodium a day when needed. One of our other members says she has much better luck with Lomotil, which is a prescript
Then relax and enjoy your trip. Many of us find that our D.D. tends to take some time off when we travel, so hope this will happen for you.
