    If it's painful then the doctor should have no problem removing it, unless it's hardware that needs to remain in there permanently.

    Hi there!

    Can you give us a little more information?

    For instance, where is your hardware and what type of procedure did you have done?

    Things vary from dr to dr and between procedures, so it is difficult to answer your request without a little more info.

    Thanks!
    Step

    A friend of mine had screw removed and it was done at a surgery center, day surgery. The surgeon didn't want to take the chance with the patient moving from being awake. It was all done in about 45 minutes and really no pain afterwards. Sorry you had to go through surgery like that, it shouldn't have happened that way. I'd sure change doctors or report the doctor to the medical board for using really bad judment and making you sufffer.
