Removal of hardware in clavicle

I had a plate and 8 screws put in after a car accident a few years ago. It has been very painful and one screw is loose and sticking out. I'm having surgery to remove the metal and I'm hoping to be more comfprtable. The doctor said that I will have a week of recovery and then be able to do anything I want. I am both excited and scared.Has anybody had this procedure and might be able to tell me what to expect? Thanks!
