tell the flight attendants at the gate BEFORE boarding that you have a medical issue that requires you to sit right next to the toilet.
they will let you pre-board. then you can sit right there and monitor the loo.
since it is a short flight (not short, but i just flew from australia to US so 5 hours seems short)... you are probably on a smaller plane.
best thing to do is just watch the toilet your sitting next to and if you feel anything... pop in line before it gets big.
or tell whoever comes up that you are next in line but you have to sit rather than stand in front of them.
