Hi Cheaptrick, I know exactly how you feel as I stopped breastfeeding my 2.2 yo in February and my boobs were really sore too. Eventually I went to the Dr as I was so uncomfy, she examined them and said they would just get better with time. Also recommended tying a scarf tightly around my boobs to give more support, it worked very well. Other things to try are having a warm bath and leaning forwards so your boobs are covered with water, made mine much more comfy and also encouraged any remaining milk to come out. You could also try the old cabbage leaf in your bra trick, a bit odd but worked for me when I felt very 'full'.
I was sore for about 2 weeks but part of your discomfort could be your boobs changing with the pregnancy. It took about a week and a half for my milk to stop completely.

Good luck, it should get better soon.
