Pain after extraction, please help!

I had a bad infection/abscess on my gum and cracked tooth I had a root canal on 2 years ago. After 10 days of antibiotics, dr. extracted it yesterday. I felt a lot of pain along with the pressure of the extractionl .
Today there is extreme swelling- my cheek a bit, but mostly the surrounding gum and where the tooth was. I can't even get myself to eat liquids or drink more than a cup of water. It just feels so uncomfortable/weird and is swollen and in pain. I am taking Motrin 800 mg and a couple more pills of Penicillin.
This was my first big bottom molar.
Is this anything to worry about? My head kills along with that area. I guess I should give it another day or two? I also have stitches in that will be taken out next week. Guess I just have to have soft foods for a couple weeks when I'm ready to eat? Thanks for any help or any experience you can share with your extraction. (Also- weird/gross taste in mouth - is that normal?) Take care.

Re: Pain after extraction, please help!

some swelling is normal, call your oral surgeon and inform him/her they might want a quick follow up
