Safe to run?

Patient : I am a runner who is supposed to be running my first marathon sunday, have been training for months but on my run tues am i got a deep cut in my leg (broken bottle on sidewalk, a piece must have caught in my right shoe and next step, came up and sliced my left leg, lower inside). i had 10 stitches and er said i should be ok to run as long as stitches healing well enough to not come open. my problem is that it feels like i have a charlie horse in that leg (cut muscle?) i ran a 3 mi run (my first since happened) and it hurt the whole time. What can I do? I have trained too hard to not race sunday.
