How could the hump be removed if I still see it six weeks post op and it feels like bone?

Bump on nose
At 6 weeks you are probably still pretty swollen. If you end up having a residual bump, it can always be treated. Best of luck.
I think the hardest things for rhinoplasty patients is that the results aren't immediate. You've had this major surgery and often, when the bandages come off, things may look the same or worse. It will take time for the swelling to subside -- anywhere from 6 months to a year. For now, be patient and kind to yourself as your body recovers. If, at 6 months post op, you are still unhappy then schedule an appointment with your surgeon to discuss options.
Postoperative recovery after septorhinoplasty / nose surgery
Indeed, there is swelling that is still present at 6 weeks and would wait to see this resolve over time; additionally would followup with your plastic surgeon
