Many patients find sitting for long periods of time to be uncomfortable, especially in a car, on a bus or on a plane. When travelling, try to break up long car or bus rides into smaller segments. Cars with a smooth suspension, such as larger sedans or SUV’s, are usually much more comfortable for IC patients to drive in. IC friendly chair cushions might make trips more comfortable.
Remember, we want you to be out and enjoying your life but if you struggle with anxiety over finding a restroom, consider carrying some Restroom Access Cards, TravelJohns or Go Girls in your purse and/or car. These can be used in a pinch any time a restroom isn’t readily available including, dare we suggest, a plane!
