forearm fractured metal plate pain

i had fractured my forearm in an industrial accident where a machine landed on my forearm and snapped the ulna and radius in half. i had surgery january 28th. it's been roughly 11 and 1/2 weeks since the surgery.

I still feel weird sensations in the forearm when i rest the plate on my forearm against a table. my surgeon said i will have to go back into surgery for a bone graph, but that is for the radius side. Is it fairly normal to experience this pain? And I'm getting a puppy in the next 6 weeks, just curious if it will be terrible for my arm if i pick it up with both arms.
