Hi..

Your son might have disturbed the alignment if the fractured site.Since you had a surgery with k wire fixation there is less chances of disturbing to large extent...
I recommend you to have a check x- Ray done and if needed, cast can be redone..
Since he is having pain and plates loosening feeling...get opinion if the surgeon regarding the plates position...

Hope this is helpful for you..
Kindly revert back in case you need any further help in this regard
