It is common for the partial dentures to need several adjustments to help them fit better. I know you are anxious to wear them, but it is not wise to keep them in when they hurt so bad. Because you cannot see your dentist until tuesday, it is best to leave them out until then. If you leave the partials in without being adjusted, you will get very bad sores that will take a long time to heal which means you would have to leave the partials out anyway.
Sorry you have had a difficult time with your teeth.... sounds like your teeth were not in such great shape when you entered the military. If you have a lot of bone loss from teeth that were removed only 3 years ago, that indicates that the teeth were already badly decayed or broken down. When that occurs, your replacement options will be limited. Hopefully your new dentist will work with you on getting these partials comfortable. It may take some time......
