My dh broke his leg in '90, he had a plate and screws. In '93 (when we finally got insurance) he had them removed. It was done under general anesthesia, and was pretty quick. He was on crutches for a day or two afterward, but that was it. I don't remember him really being in any pain from it.

I do remember removing his stitches a week or so later. We had just moved and didn't want to drive all the way back to the dr. to have him remove them, so I did it with a pair of tweezers and nail clippers. :)
