With or without complications, any bone brake requiring surgery and the healing process is painful. What were the crate rest instructions and length of time along with instructions on when and how the surgeon wanted her to proceed with getting back to normal activity? Are you being strict about that? (The last question is just posed for you to consider and is not meant as judgement nor is an answer expected. It's just meant for you, no one else.). That said, if you question anything, contact the surgeon again for reassurance, let him know if there was any deviation from the instructions, i.e. She jumped unexpectedly while on potty break, etc and or get a second opinion. I think it's normal to look to others for reassurance but honestly, no matter what others say, only the/a surgeon who knows/sees what your concerns are will have the answers.
Through my adult human kids who have had surgeries requiring screws and pins, one of them did have discomfort from a screw but it seemed to resolve as the healing progressed.
I'm really sorry this has happened and wishing her a full recovery. She looks like a sweet girl
Edit to add, don't take her out of the crate without leashing her to you so that you can immediately prevent any harmful activity.
