    You probably have Phlebitis (look it up).That happened to me too and it took about 3 months for the aching pain to go away completely. Other veins in the area will help take over any reduced function. Using a pain reliving ointment like Voltarol may help for a while. If you think it is infected (dark red with edges spreading, maybe a weeping wound)  then see your doctor asap.
