Immediate uppers

5 days ago I had upper extractions (9 teeth) and immediate dentures in. For the 1st 2 days my gums were so swollen and sore I could barely stand the denture in. Went back to the dentist who adjusted them and told me to use small amount of adhesive. I have to use alot of adhesive to hold it. Is this normal? Also the right side touches my bottom teeth but the left side does not. The bite is off and that bothers me. Can't eat even applesauce with denture. Is this normal? How long before I can eat with it?  Thanks.
