Leaving the DivaCup in for a few days

I am in a situation where I might not be able to take my DivaCup out for a few days.  Here are the circumstances:

1. Put DivaCup in yesterday
2. Woke up late for class today and ran out without emptying it
3  Twisted my foot after class and can't put any weight on my right leg, much less squat down in my usual awkward position to remove the DivaCup

I'm not worried about leakage at this point in my period, but I'm wondering if anyone knows if I'll suffer severe consequences for leaving it in for 48+ hours.  Has anyone ever left it in for a long time?  Did you experience anything untoward?  Of course I'll try to remove it ASAP, but I'm not sure when my foot will recover sufficiently for the procedure.

This is a rather obscure question, so I'll appreciate any help you can give.  Thank you!

Update: Just wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who replied to my post.  The reassurances, suggestions, and dire warnings were all very helpful!  I was finally able to extract the cup, and though I wouldn't say that it has emerged none the worse for wear, still that's a problem for another day.  For now, my mind's at ease, my foot is iced, and my sanity's very grateful.  Thank you!
