Yes, Rod's are definitely Removable and are usually advised to be removed post 12 months of successful healing of the fracture site. As far as side effects goes, no particular side effect as such except the basic side effects of surgery that are scar, and a bit of skin tightness, prone to infection.
Next Steps
wait for your orthopedic's advice before opting for removing.
