Help! No bowel control ruining my life!

I don't mean to be graphic, but here's my story.....whenever I have to have a bowel movement, I need to make a mad dash to the restroom. There are times when I will get a stomach cramp and be sitting in the car or at work and it just "comes out." I can feel the stool just pushing it's way down the rectum and out it comes! Or if I feel the urge and get up to go I cannot hold it in; it will just come out as I'm trying to get to the bathroom. I wear sanitary napkins everyday because of this problem. This used to happen to me maybe once or twice a year; now it seems to be once a week! I have had numerous colonoscopies (although last one was 3 years ago) and take lomotil which used to work but now seems to have no effect. I had my gallbladder out about 10 years ago and have cholestrimine (spelling?) to try but as yet have not given that a shot. The pill my doctor put me on a while back was for motility and it dried me out so bad that whenever I'd eat I would have to have a drink with every bite! I'll be going on several trips this year and the anxiety of just thinking about this has me ready to cancel all of them! PLEASE HELP!!!
