Femur fracture

I had an operation in my left femur bone. Doctor has inserted a titanium rod with 1 screw in bottom and 2 screw at the top. Now the doctor is saying that I need to remove the 2nd srew at the top as its called locking screw. Once it is remove, the healing process will get faster. Is it necessary to remove that 2nd screw?
