Welcome to the wrapped club!
Being able to burp is an added bonus. Swallowing doesn't really start to be as issue until a couple weeks out, sometimes a bit sooner depending on how your body reacts. This is when the swelling is the worst. Don't worry if this happens as it is a normal part of the healing process.
Take it easy and rest up.
