Surgery Tomorrow-Bowel prep problem?

I am sooooooo uncomfortable! I started my bowel prep at 2:00pm today per doctors orders. I drank 8 ounces every 15 minutes of that horrible stuff as directed. It said to stop when the efluent was clear which took about 2 1/2 hours. I wound up having to drink a little more than half of the gallon (yuck!) but here I am 3 1/2 hours later still running to the bathroom! Besides being sore all over, I am scheduled for surgery at 7:30am and afraid that it isn't going to stop! My DH is worried about me dehydrating and keeps giving me fluids but they are going through me. Has this happened to anybody else? I don't want anything happening to postpone the surgery, I have already waited over a month for it and am afraid the cancer could be spreading.

Just keep drinking your water until the time you are supposed to stop. I had to stop drinking at midnight. I was worried myself because it wasn't working very well. One hour before surgery I finally had my explosion (sorry about that graphic picture). Use baby wipes for your sore'll feel tons better.

I had to do this kind of prep for the colonoscopy. I was still going to the bathroom that morning about an hour before the procedure. They assured me it was ok. Hopefully, your system will calm down. Good luck!

Thanks for your words of encouragement and luck! I sure hope my system does calm down and soon. I didn't think I would get much sleep tonight anyway, but now I am afraid to go to sleep! I have to be at the hospital at 5:30am which means leaving at 4:45 the way I feel now I don't think I could make the car ride without stopping to find a bathroom on the way...and what is going to be open at that time???? I thought I was doing so good handling the surgery and diagnosis but this seems to be the icing on the cake and is stressing me out!
