How long after wisdom teeth extraction will I be able to eat real food?

I had my wisdom teeth extracted a week and a half ago and I've been to the dentist twice because the bottom right side just didn't feel right. The stitches became loose and they didn't do anything two days later I went in because the stitches were completely dissolved but the hole was hurting so they cleaned it and put some black paste over it and said I should be fine. Do I have anything to worry about? And will my cheeks ever feel normal they still feel swollen
