Everyone responds differently. I ate Chinese food the first night after I had mine out. I did swell up a little in the face though.
Make sure you're cleaning the stitched area, and managing your pain. I will admit I have an extremely high tolerance for pain so I may be off when saying that post-op I wasn't in much pain at all.
I also was recommended to have them out but they were not bothering me, very happy I had it done though as 1 that was left in came down and caused a couple problems before the dentist fixed it.
