    You need to discuss that with them I think. Maybe they can do something intravenously.

    Perhaps you could use the services of a colonic cleansing technician? You may not be rquired to drink large volumes, if you go that route.

    Can you start the prep earlier in the day.  So you can drink like a cup every hour.  Would that help?
