Well, it definitely: sounds like time to return to the surgeon or another orthopedic specialist and have this evaluated. Sometimes hardware can be removed after the fracture or other bone problem heals. It is definitely not normal to be in constant pain from orthopedic hardware, and even worse that it is impeding your walking. Make an appointment. Good wishes:)
