I need some travel advice/tip from the more seasoned travelers. I plan to go to India in Nov 2009 to beat the winter and meet family and friends while I am there. I plan to get back in Feb/Mar 2010. Now here is my problem, I am completely wheelchair bound and cannot stand on my own. The trip takes around 24 hours each way and 3 plane changes (2 to get to EWR from MSN and 1 to get to BOM). My biggest concern is toileting while in air, how will I manage this? I have read about adult diapers and catheters, which one is better? I personally would avoid diapers, so catheter is what I am thinking of. But I haven’t used one before, any ideas on good ones? Are there any other suggestions for making a long airplane ride easy?
