Hi and welcome.

As lots of metal plates pins and wires are routinely used in orthopedic surgery of different types and reamer tip is also metal inside his bone. So nothing to worry about as it would not cause any problem. Pain is due to surgical incision and inflammation and it would settle down in couple of days. He can take ibuprofen tablet for pain.

Let me know if you have further questions.
