so me & some single girlfriends are booking a 4 day trip to vegas in april. i've never traveled like this before & am terrified of heights/planes (although i have been on a plane once before & did okay). i also know that A LOT of alcohol will be consumed during these 4 days.
i am not as sick with uc as i have been in the past, but still not back to full health, and my main issue right now is urgency. bm's are still mostly liquid, but am at least only going about
2 - 3 times a day now with only a little mucus & no blood.
any advice for taking this kind of trip? meds i can ask my gi for? things to help keep myself calm (especially when waiting for take off & landing on the plane - i know those will be my roughest moments)? any restaurants to stay away from? are there lots of potties along the strip? HAHAHA.
i have tons of prednisone left over from when i was on it before - would it be okay to just go on a lower dosage for 4 days? would imodium help with the diarrhea & urgency issues at all?
i am sooooo excited, but also nervous. the 4 of us are also going to be sharing ONE hotel room, so bathroom-wise i think that might be a little tough on me. i am trying to push for two conjoining rooms. one of the other girls going has IBS so i imagine she might have a bit of trouble as well.
also sig is not updating for some reason - no more prednisone. have been doing pentasa enemas semi-regularly for the last 3 weeks.
Asacol - 4x 800mg every morning
Prednisone - started at 40 mg in mid-September 2012, currently at 5mg & tapering down!
