In brief: Hiatal hernia

Yes. Even if your hiatal hernia was repaired during your gastric bypass, it can occur again.
An EGD or upper GI will show if you have one.

In brief: Yes

Gastric by-pass and surgery to correct a hiatal hernia are two different surgical procedures, and are not mutually exclusive with regard to prevention/elimination of recurrence of disease.

In brief: Yes

Yes, but unlikely.
Symptoms from this may include difficulty swallowing, chest pain/pressure, and possibly regurgitation. An upper GI contrast study and maybe endoscopy needed to make the diagnosis. If it gets too bad, contact your surgeon for a follow up visit.
