Unable to get dentures back in

I had a top denture made and am really struggling to get it back in. The pain is absolutely horrendous. My dentist said I have to give it time but I have to push so hard to get them in I end up crying. They are extremely tight around the back of the gums should I get them altered? Any recommendations would be gratefully received. I always said I would never be seen without teeth but at the moment this is a more favourable option

I had a similar issue after my extractions. I gave my gums a rest for a few days because of swelling and was finally able to get them in, with numbing my gums first because of the pain. I called and got an adjustment appointment and they feel much better now.
