Help needed yfv not being approved!

hi people
I went to swap a couple yfv tokens using metamask via uniswap. I had to pay about 8 use in a fee to approve yfv? anyone know what this is? anyway, this transaction has been going on for 7 hours now and I’ve tried increasing the gas to insane amounts and sending new transactions over the top with even bigger gas price but it is still pending? are my coins locked or something? son confused any help would be amazing cheers

load your metamask into another browser and then check https://ethgasstation.info/ before you make your transaction, with the way things are there is no “safe low” it doesnt exist you have to put in a number above fast if you want anything to get done in a reasonable time frame or not run out of gas completely.
