Screw that went awry

I am looking at me second hip surgery. My first one was in 2015 for FAI (Femoroacetabular impingement). The surgeon wasn't good at putting in screws. So 5 years later the screw has embedded about half way through the femur. The screw has misplaced hip muscles/tendon, fluid build uP, and bits floating around. I am curious on how would they remove screw that is embedded in your bone. What about bone integrity?
