Can hydrosalpinx that was already treated can occur again?

In brief: Yes

It depends on what the treatment was, but definitely a risk to recur. Tuboplasty and salingo-neostomy are terms for conservative treatment of hydrosalpinx by surgically creating a new opening at the far end of the tube.
These are definitely subject to closure, with subsequent recurrence. Treatment of hydrosalpinx by removal clearly cannot recur.

In brief: DEPENDS ON HOW TREAT

Most are treated by removal to prevent pyosalpinx or infection.
Therefore not recur on that tube but can recur on opposite tube.
