I had the same situation (queen cells) and decided to take them out and make a nuc / split with the frame containing the cells. This is now my strongest hive! I considered moving the queen and letting the virgin queen take over the existing hive. Now, after reading you plight, I'm happy I did it the way I did.
The thing I love about beekeeping is that every experience leads me to more knowledge that I can invariably apply to a later situation.
Hang in there!
