It is best to get it removed.
Thanks for posting your query.
If there is a pain and tenderness at the site of the screws then it is best to get the screws and the rod removed. Since your bone has healed well there should not be any problem. It is minor surgery.
You may have to rest for a week after the surgery and then you can resume your daily work.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
