In brief: Can be serious.
Reversal surgery can be risky.
Injury to the stomach or esophagus can occur. Your symptoms may recur, however there is some benefit in hiatal hernia repair alone. Before you have reversal, i recommend that you have a 24hr impedance pH study and an esophageal manometry to evaluate your symptoms and see what is going on if you are unhappy with your results.

In brief: Return of Reflux
Reversal of a fundoplication is most commonly done to treat the gas-bloat that some people develop postoperatively.
While it is effective, it may not be necessary--before considering reoperation, see a gastroenterologist. Endoscopic dilitation may improve your symptoms without causing complete return of your reflux. Good luck!
