I was sore for about a week, but that's not common. I overdid it when I felt better and actually caused more damage than I would've if I'd just listened to my Dr and took it easy for a few weeks.
As for feeling foreign, it takes a different amount of time for all of us. For me, at about 3-4 months, I realized that I'd stopped thinking of them as "implants" and they were just "mine". That's what I define as being the point where I felt over the surgery.
