In terms of the hydrosalpinx, it SHOULD be taken out before having additional IVF, as it produces fluid that can affect implantation and success with IVF.

Second, the ability to get the tube out without damaging your bowel depends of the severity of adhesions and the skill of the surgeon. If it needs to come out, I am sure that they can get it out, but it depends on your history and prior findings.
