Slowing down the "process"

I have had many undiagnosed symptoms over the past 3 years...still with no answers. One of them is fairly constant digestive issues.
Every morning when I wake up I have an upset stomach...usually going to the bathroom 2-3 times within an hour. (sick stomach feeling, loose stool).

I've seen 2 gastroenterologists, both just said it was "mild IBS"

Aaaaanyway...
I'm going on a fishing trip with my dad in April.
3 days in a row, where we will be on a boat with no bathroom from 7am until 12pm. My stomach usually gets upset around 9 when I wake up...and I really have to go...it's not something I can hold.

I had a bad experience on a boat with this same issue about 3 years ago.

My question: Is there something that I can take that will completely stop my digestive system, or slow it down, or make it so that I can hold it for a couple hours? Anything?

Thanks guys...and sorry for the slight rant.

I appreciate any help at all!

Bananas,chocolate, cheese, and or immodium AD will help to firm up your stools ,Depending upon whether you can digest milk and dairy products or not,you might try drinking a lot milk or eating a lot of cheese. These are constipating for those people who tend to get constipated very easily and often.

Thank you!
For immodium, kaopectate, and similar products, should I take something like that the night before? Or in the morning right before I usually have an upset stomach?
