I can't pronounce my words properly or smile correctly

I am 17 days post op. I had a forehead lift, lower face lift, chin implant, chemical peel , fat filled into my nasal folds and lips and rhinoplasty. The swelling has gone down pretty good except around my jaw line. I can feel what I guess is swelling and muscle under my skin around the front of my ears and under my jaw line to my ears. All this I understand will take time. I got a yeast infection on my cheeks (peel area) which is red but healing. I am concerned about not being able to pronounce my words correctly and not being able to smile correctly. I did my homework and went to the best... I only see him once a week and it seem like forever before I get to see him again. He has told me not to talk much or make facial gestures. I have been fairly compliant. I read about others who can smile eat and I get worried. Just curious if anyone else had the speech issue or smile issue in the beginning and how long did it take to resolve? Yes.. i will ask him when I see him but talking to others is good too.Thank you in advance for your feedback. ALSO... my neck it tight tight tight. Even when I look forward, if my teeth are together I can not lift my head much. :( I am trying to be patient.
