Feel discomfort in arm after accident with plates and screws installed surgically.

I do a lot of sports and am a very physically active man. I had an automobile accident 2 years ago and fractured my right arm. Plates and screws were installed surgically. Today I feel pain in that part of my body and believe the plates to be the cause. Is it possible to remove the plates?

Yes. Plates can be removed. You will first need to get x ray to ensure bones are healed and muscles are strong enough and no other condition is present.
