I just wanted to let everyone know about my little experience in Las Vegas. It was my first time there and I have been dealing with IBS-D since the 6th grade, I am 24 now, so needless to say, my nerves can sometimes get the best of me. However, my excitement in traveling to Vegas must have helped, because the entire way there from Florida was wonderful. A little tip for the folks traveling by plane, even though you have to sit in the back, most commercial planes have 2 bathrooms in the back and only one in the front, this too, helped to calm the nerves.Once there, it was only a quick trip to our hotel, the Luxor, and we were settled in to our room within 10 15 minutes after leaving the airport. Let me tell all the IBS suffers in the world, GO TO VEGAS and kiss all your cares away. I have never seen so many bathrooms in my life. And with all of the distractions, I didn't know if I was coming or going. No matter where you looked on the strip, it was one hotel after another and most of them had bathrooms right up front.I only had one instance where my IBS-D came up and that was when I was leaving for the airport. It stayed with me all the way through the flight, but thanks to my friend Immondium, it wasn't too bad. I highly recommend going to Vegas, especially during May and June, since they offer so many dicounts and upgrades. My fiancee and I staying in the Jacuzzi suite in the pyramid for only $100 per night. It was amazing.Thanks for the great message board, it has halped my greatly!
