I would think that would be very normal, as it was with me, because the tissues in that area were traumatized by the extraction, and need more time to fully heal. I'm sure that you'll continue to improve, but it you don't, you should call your dentist.

Completely normal. My experience has been that the pain actually gets a bit worse on day 3 and 4 (usually due to swelling and taking less pain medication).
