most likely the surgery will be an out patient surgery and you will not need an overnight stay
you will need some xrays to assess the area and the hard ware which is in there now.
you would need to see an othopedic surgeon to have the plate and screws removed.
yes the holes in the bones where the screws are in will need time to fill in, but you can still use your arm as the holes fill in if there is no fracture in your cavicle bone at this point.
let me know if you have other questions.
