Please help! Septoplasty and sinus surgery 3 weeks ago...feel worse!

I had a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, concha bullosa removal and maxillary sinus surgery three weeks ago. The problem is, I feel worse than I did before the surgery! Here are my symptoms:
1)Constant pain in/on my nose. Hurts to touch it, swelling inside and out.
2)Pressure in my cheeks, around my eyes and under my nose. This is constant as well. Feels like a bad sinus infection, plus it feels "heavy"
3)Equilibrium issues that were not there before the surgery. Feel kind of "out of it."

I have told my dr about all this at my appointment a few days ago, but he brushed it off as being normal and that I could expect to feel better in a few week, if not a few months! Is it normal to feel so bad for so long??? He did say that I had the worst deviated septum that he had ever you think since he obviously had to do a ton of work in there, that I'm experiencing more swelling than someone with a mild to moderate deviation? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
