Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
It appears that the screw is loosened, or there is non union or mal union of the ends of radius.
By this time it is expected to remove the plates and screws to prevent the absorption of the metal into the blood. or the plates may be parmanent, to leave in side.make it clear about the matter.
You may take second openion about the condition.
Take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts,and
protein rich foods to have resistance against the pain.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
