Hot water line clogged

I had a nail in a pipe in the wall, thanks to some siding contractors. We ahd noticed a loud noise in the wall about 3 months after the siding was installed. Then last night I discoverd a water leak in the hot water line. I was able to fix it, after cutting a hole in the wall of course. I made sure to keep the pipe ends clean and nothing got in the pipes. I was flushing the kitchen faucet which was running great then all of the sudden I heard a thud and lost all water pressure on the hot side to my kitchen. I think a peice of calcium broke loose from the water heater and has clogged the line. Is there any way to unclog it. Unless special tools are needed I should be able to handle it.
