Endometrial biopsy 3/3/15 results - tubal metaplasia and scant sample, so d&c hysteropscopy 04/14/15 results show no tubal metaplasia can it reverse?

In brief: Insignificant find

Tubal metaplasia is an insignificant finding in endometrial tissue.
Often it is not even mentioned because it is common. It has no association with hyperplasia or cancer at all. It is an incidental finding that is usually present only focally. Your MD undoubtedly repeated the biopsy because the initial biopsy was scant and s/he wanted a better sample, NOT to see if there is more metaplasia.

In brief: Can

Metaplasia is reversible by definition.
However it is more likely that the scant sample on biopsy was insufficient for a definitive diagnosis.
