Is it normal to still have pain when you open your mouth to eat and be unable to open your mouth fully 2 weeks after having your wisdom teeth removed?

It can be normal. It's sometimes quite a surgery. If you are having any concerns, call you doctor. If it isn't getting better at all or starts to get worse, call your doctor. But some achiness and pain is sometimes normal for some people. Sounds like alot of work was done to get your teeth out. Keep using heat, take some pain meds, and keep in touch with your dentist. Normally 7-10 days is recovery period, but you might have been a very difficult extraction.

It is quite common to have wisdom teeth removed anywhere from 15 to 30.

You can eat after having your wisdom teeth removed, but you should eat food that aren't crunchy, such as mashed potatoes, pudding, and milkshakes.
