  • Mine lasted a week and was so bad if I pushed it a dent would stay for a minute or two. But it never hurt.

  • You might want to call you doctor...even the oncall on. That is not good that it hurts. In the meantime...try elevating your legs above your heart. So lay down and stuff pillows under your legs. I would call my doctor and being that it is late on saturday I would call the on-call line.
