Varies by individual: It is recommended that heavy physical activity should not be done for 48-72 hours after removal of wisdom teeth to protect the blood clot and not stress the wound site. In terms of feeling "normal, " every individual heals at a different rate, but most people feel relatively normal within 7-10 days barring any infection. Complete closure of the gum over the extraction site will take 4-6 weeks.

Varies: It varies from patient to patient and it also varies based on the position of the tooth in the jaw bone. Usually you should feel back to normal after 1-2 weeks. Some feel fine in a couple of days.
