numpty5, For me that is an easy choice. I would certainly have the op to remove the bit of bone causing the problem. Been under the surgeons Knife a few times.Once for a bone graft,bone taken from hip and used to rebuild ankle joint. Once for a subdural hematoma leading to a crainotomy (a piece of skull was cut out and stored inside my waist). Sounds gruesome. However since those and other ops i have never looked back.Now i just do more normal things like bungy jumping,white water rafting and a bit of travelling around the world. Never got hit by a bird though (apart from in the pocket Lol). Stitch in time and all of that. Goodluck and all the best.
