Submandibular gland surgery

I just had my submandibular gland removed 5 days ago due to chronic infection. I had to ask, I have difficulty swallowing and can't open my mouth wide and was just wondering how long it usually takes to fully recover, you know, like when can I fully open my mouth and eat normally?
