If I have had LASIK done previously, will I still be able to remove my cataract?

Yes, a cataract surgery can still be performed as per normal. The difference is in the calculations of the correct dioptre (power) of IOL to be implanted for a post-LASIK eye.
You should retain the pre- and post-LASIK parameters to enable your surgeon to calculate the IOL accurately. Nonetheless, recent developments of more advanced formulas can also give similarly accurate calculations even without the pre-LASIK parameters.
You should inform your doctor of any previous laser refractive surgery done (LASIK, epi-LASIK, RK, PRK, etc.)
