From my own experience, it will stop hurting in less than a week, but it might take 6 months to regrow a complete nail.

If it doesn't stop hurting, probably there is a bit of broken nail stuck somewhere that it shouldn't be, so you need to get that removed (that's not exactly a high tech medical procedure, but can be hard to see what you are doing to your own feet so you probably need to get somebody else to do it!)

If you can't wiggle your toes inside your shoes they are too tight anyway, whether or not you have a broken nail.
