In brief: No

Performing a laparoscopic gallbladder removal would not affect anything near an old hiatal hernia repair. If there was a recurrence from the hiatal hernia, it almost certainly wasn't due to the gallbladder operation.

In brief: Hernia

It depends on where the mesh was placed it is best to review the findings with your surgeons who performed the 2 procedures however it is unusual to dissect near the hiatus for a lap chole, it could be he case for an abdominal wall hernia.
