Does removing deep impacted ear wax hurt? Flushing with water doesn't work.

In brief: Min/Mild discomfort

Deep impacted wax can be removed carefully with only mild discomfort in a specialist (ENT) office with the right equipment.
Occasionally drops are used to soften excessively hard wax for a few days prior to removal.
