Have reconstructed elbow, one screw remaining, arm in pain. What is wrong?

Hi I have a reconstructed elbow and there is one screw remaining in there (not sure where never saw the X-ray after I had metal work out). Now all of a sudden my arm really hurts and I can physically feel my arm pulsing. Should I be worried or is it a case that this is to to be expected as time goes on. Surgery was 10 years ago, metalwork removal was 6 years ago
