    You'll want to let the airline know of your diet restrictions so they will have something available that you can eat. You may also want to carry along some IC friendly snack items. Your prescriptions should be in their original containers, especially if any are liquid. With children, you should be able to do early boarding so you won't have to stand in line.

    I don't think you are allowed to take bottled water with you through security, but you should be able to purchase some in the secure areas --- and let the airline know that you need bottled water.

    You might also want to talk with your doctor before you go so you will be sure to have pain meds, etc., to last through your stay.

    Sending encouraging hugs,

    When I've taken flights with IC, I've arranged for an aisle seat near the restroom. I also take Pyridium & Ditropan for the flight. I figure if I take a longer flight, I'd probably take a Darvocet & Flexeril (muscle relaxant). The stick on head pads are great & I've used those on planes as well. Definitely get some bottled water in the terminals, okay? I get milk to drink on the plane or bottled water if they have it. Don't forget an ipod or cd player for distraction too. Hopefully they'll have a good in-flight movie!

    I'm hoping to travel to Europe summer 2008. I'd love to hear about your trip. Let us know how it goes, okay?

    I have never traveled for that long at a time, but be sure to drink lots of bottled water, have pain meds, if you have pfd, muscle relaxer's for the walking, etc., stick on heat pads, and any other remedies you use. I always just get an aisle seat so I can get up and go to the bathroom alot. Good Luck, sounds like fun.

    Traveling to Europe with IC

    Hi Everyone:

    I would like to go see my grandma in Europe but am worried about traveling with my kids and IC. The trip is about 12 hours with stopovers. My last trip on a 2 hour flight was horrible (prior to my diagnosis). Any helpful hints?

    Thanks
