Force DNS Updates

I have just changed my nameservers for my domain name and am waiting the for Internet DNS servers to update to reflect the changes. Until this is done my site is down and any email sent to my domain is lost. Is it possible to force the Internet DNS servers to perform an update NOW?

I think it's the referesh one. Am I correct? or could it be minimum-ttl?

It's now 23mins til the refresh time elapses.

Nameservers were changed at 10:39 GMT therefore 3 hours refreshed time will expire at 13:39 GMT.
