Default Overcarbonated - Forced

I was going to bottle out of my keg and accidentally turned to CO2 up while I was finishing cleaning, instead of down. I've pulled the pressure release a few times, but I am still getting 2/3 foam a day later. Any tips to get it to settle back down?

Disconnect the gas feed from the keg and release the pressure 2-4 times a day for 2-4 days before connecting the gas again.
