The force of gravity acting at the surface depends on the mass of the planet, which we don't yet know. If we assume (and it's a big assumption) that the density is the same as that of the Earth, then it would have roughly 14 times the mass of the Earth, and the gravity felt at the surface would therefore be roughly 14 times that on Earth.

So yes, it would be a tad uncomfortable. :-)
