I've heard it is a simple procedure.  I'm thinking about having mine out in March.
1991 - R ACL patellar tendon, med. meniscus removed (50%)
2002 - R ACL revision, cadaver, lat. meniscus removed (50%)
2011 - L ACL patellar tendon, med. and lat. meniscus REPAIR.
3/2012 - L Medial meniscectomy (didn't heal from 2011), microfracture
11/6/12 - L TTT (maquet). Micro fully healed

I had all my screws (from multiple surgeries) taken out apart from one which cannot be removed, pretty simple procedure had both knees done at the same time.
No problems afterward, felt a bit weird (only way to describe it) for a few day after but then all surgeries do don't they, if its causing problems then i can't see a reason not to have it removed.

I can't see it being an issue, might be a little sore but nothing major.
hope it all goes well.
