Ulcers 1 week post extractions/denture

A week ago I had 10 extractions and top denture fitted. First few days nothing unexpected, tender but fine. But now I have several ulcers that are making it close to impossible to remove denture. Constant sharp, raw localised pain. Needing ibuprofen more now than ever. Still on mashed foods only. Takes me 15 mins of crying on the floor of the shower to get the stupid thing out for the night. Then repeat next morning to get it back in... Have been back to dentist twice (day 3 and day 5), dentist advised to get SM33 (numbing gel) to help with removal. Dentist reluctant to shave anything off denture as she says once my mouth settles it wont fit as well...How long will these ulcers last? I have to return to work and am feeling really down as it seems quite hopeless.
Get back to the dentist and ask them to adjust the denture, their excuse for not doing it is really silly.
