Hi Pearl

It sounds as if the nerves in the leg are more sensitive around the area where the screws are. Yes, this can be normal, but it it bothers you a lot, then you can go to the doctor to make sure that there is not too much scar tissue around the screws, causing the irritation of the nerves and the surrounding tissue. Good luck.
