In brief: Prior surgery

Yes, you can still have surgery.
It will be a little more difficult for the surgeon but it can still be done.

In brief: Yes

A history of prior surgery such as you describe should not preclude weight loss surgery as long as you qualify for it.
The procedure should still be able to be completed laparoscopically.
