austin bunionectomy - x-rays show broken/too long screw

I need to know more about this. i had x-rays taken 1 week ago by my chiropractor. i had my bunionectomy done in dec 2001 and the current x-rays show one screw kind of bent and almost broken in half - as well as being too long. my chiro said that the screw is hurting soft tissue inside my foot. has the bone healed enough for this not to be a problem? what about the tissue - it is tender in that spot. what is the procedure to remove this? please email.
