Toe nail damage

While at the gym, I had a 45 pound weight fall on my right big toe. After quite a bit of swelling and pain, I relieved the pressure by poking a hole through my nail. Everything seemed to be going okay, until about a month later when I was cleaning my nails the left side and cuticle area of my toe nail disengaged. The right side of my toe nail is still attached. I can see what appears to be a new nail growing in underneath. Do I let the new nail push the old out or do I try and help the old nail disengage completely and deal with the pain? Any ideas of how to help the process along so that the old nail comes off more quickly? Kind of afraid that I will accidentally rip the old nail out before it's due and cause some serious injury. I would greatly appreciate any information.
