Should I fix my retainers myself?

My bottom clear retainers hurt my gums really bad I think their too tight. They peel and cut my skin and so I want to trim the retainers myself cause my ortho is closed today. Only a little.

When I left home I threw out my retainer, oh please have more sense than I did as I still have my over bite. Sweetheart call your dentist and say help me and explain. Take a Tylenol and make the call your dentist will call you back as your parents paid through the roof for this.

Don't cut it. You could ruin it.

I would just remove them for today, and get to my orthodontist as soon as possible.
