Can you explain what are my gums supposed to feel like after I have healed from my wisdom tooth extraction surgery?

In brief: Depends on time

The healing process after any surgical procedure takes time.
Now, depending on the type of procedure, extent of the surgery, and the time elapsed after that, the shape ; sensation of the gums can vary. But generally, a healthy and healed gum should be smooth, not achy, pinkish red color, ; without swelling ; bleeding. For more specific answer, please give us more specific info, if you can
