Does anyone know how long a rapid relief cold pack lasts for? My friend was in a cae accident and we just opened one, and wanted to know how long it will last just in case I need to run out and get more, as we only have one, thank you

It does not say on the package how long it lasts for, and I looked on the web site, and it didn't say, I was hoping someone had used these before. I do have ice, but she is trying to sleep, and I am out of freezer bags (so that the water doesnt leak all over, tried grocery bag).

She has been at the hospital, thank you.... and the doctor told her to ice it for the first two days, then heat... These ice packs are easier to use b/c it is her back and shoulders that are hurt, and the packs are easier to lay on then ice cubes... we will find out how long they last b/c we have cracked one, I just needed to know if I should run out to buy some more....

Put some ice in water .. and fill it with some cold water .. just enough so it will form around where she is putting it. sometimes it is uncomfortable with just ice in the bag.
