I had my wisdoms pulled a long time ago. I had all 10 remaining uppers pulled. I will be glad when the stitches are dissolved, and my gums are healed up. They do feel funny though, you are right about that. Feels kinda like the "vampire teeth" we wore as kids. The hardest part so far is the "gag reflex" I have been having with them in.
The salmon patties and mac 'n cheese was pretty easy to eat. We didn't have the beans. I didn't do any shakes, don't really care for them to start with. I survived on cream of chicken soup and jello for the last couple of days, with tea to drink with no ice in it- just cold out of the fridge. I have only had 2 of the hydrocodones, but I have been taking the prescription Motrin (800MG), along with the penicillin. I have a question for the other denture wearers here- do you have to wait until you are all healed up before you use any adhesive?
