Mike, I'm not sure if by "it" you mean the cement
bd. alone or the board and mortar bed. I think you'll
want to take it in steps. Try to remove the CBUs with
as little damage to the mortar bed as possible, next
assess the shape of the motar bed. If it's in good
shape, and your concern is to bring the flooring
back up to the height it was with the CBUs, I would
consider a self-leveling compound. If the mortar bed
is toast, it should come out. If it is your intention
to install new tile, the best thing at this
point might be to just have the mortar bed replaced
(a bit thicker maybe to get the height you want).
If you're going to install some other flooring, building
up a new floor with a plywood sub-floor is fine.

I'm not sure if it
