Tile can definitely be replaced. The sooner it's removed, the easier it is to remove. I wouldn't worry too much about your cement board, a section of that can also be replaced if need be.

Didn't see the response. Bathroom is looking good - I didn't realize the toilet wall tile was so high, pictures always made it look like a 1/2 wall.
