braces/surgery pain and unable to eat?

hi, I just have a few questions that I thought you might be able to help me answer. I have recently gotten an "expose and bond" surgery done on my upper canines. I also wear rubber bands, turbos, and spacers. since there are coil springs everywhere in my braces the wires are uneven and poke me at the sides to the point where I can't even yawn. when I brush my teeth my mouth bleeds. I still have the stiches visible and i am unable to eat therefore i am living off of soup. I am also trying to gain weight so I am finding it very hard. any suggestions on what I should do overall? it is extremely painful and I am not coping. I am scared of developing an eating disorder or depression. I need help! I have too much in my mouth and will have this for three whole years! my teeth are really not bad. I want it all out now!  thankyou.
