How long for molar root canal to heal?

I had a root canal finally completed on tooth #3 two weeks ago and i still can't stand to bite on the tooth. It doesn't hurt on it's own, just when i brush it or catch a bit of food by accident.
I have read that it can take a while as molars are the most complicated teeth.
My x-ray looked good and a specialist did the actual root canal so i'm pretty happy he got all the canals.
I was just looking for advice from anyone who has had a molar root canal and how long it was before the deep ache went away when pressure is applied.
I know it depends on an individual, but my whole mouth has been aching on/off for weeks probably because of the stress i have been through waiting to get this thing finished. (since July).
