Removing crews to reduce pain after a graft operation for scaphoid wrist fracture

I had a graft operation for scaphoid wrist fracture. My doctor saw my xrays after 4 weeks of cast and recasted it again saying he will remove the screws to reduce pain. What does he mean? And how can I improve my condition

Thanks for query,
You should inquire that if previous casting was alright, why you go for recasting?
And casting was not ok then why you removed screw.
I think with previous cast fracture might not have placed proper and now they might have replaced.
Now plaster is done ?
If plaster is made after 4 weeks fracture will unite and then go for physiotherapy.
ok and bye.
