In the first place , if the fracture is healed then you must have removed the screw long ago. secondly please make sure your are not confusing screw with K-wires.
Logically if the Screw is of Appropriate size then there should not be any Pain as such . But if you feel that the cause is screw only. get yourself an X-ray done and rule out the problem.
X-ray and then if required Surgery. Though it will certainly be very difficult, but not impossible,
Hello.... I can understand your problem.. But you haven't mentioned type of surgery you underwent 7 years back .usually screws in knee joint are used in ACL tear reconstruction ......Get an X-ray of knee joint ,if pain is due to screw doctor will remove it. Consult orthopedic surgeon...
