In brief: Yes
The acute phase of healing is usually over after about a week, but the bone under the gum tissues continues to heal over the next several months.

In brief: Depends on type
So much in dental treatment depends on the patient, their pain tolerance as well as the type of extraction, ie; bony, or ankylosed.
A surgeon's skill, touch & the way they do a surgery. Great hands with a patient who follows all of the home care directions can lead to a very positive result with very little pain. With all the variables, pain could be minimal or could last weeks. Meds can help.

In brief: Feeling better in wk
It will actually take months for the sockets in the bone to heal, but discomfort should be well on its way down after 3-4 days unless you develop a dry socket.
The gums should feel a lot better after about a week. It really depends on the amount of trauma that was incurred by your mouth.
