Broken wheel stud after tire changeover and day trip

Just wondering if I need to have more than one wheel stud replaced after one broke off. I am not sure when it broke off...probably just before I got into Edmonton from the Red Deer area. Did 340 km on the day trip. Heard a noise before I got to West Edmonton Mall.

About 10 days before, I had a local tire shop (chain) change over my winter tires (mounted on separate rims). After I got home (two block drive), I retorqued them at 100 ft-lbs each with my torque wrench.

One stud was broken, the remaining lug nuts were very loose. I am concerned with the other wheel studs since I had put on at least 170+ km of wear and tear on them while the one stud was lost. Or I could have broken the stud when it was retorqued and I have been driving the truck for the past 10 days with a broken wheel stud.

Is it one hour to change out one stud? How much more is it to change out the remaining four studs? Thanks.
