In brief: Possible

Blood clots in the leg veins does have a slightly increased risk after surgery.
Sitting for long time periods can increase the risk of this. But likely there would usually be associated symptoms of leg pain or leg swelling. If you are concerned, you should talk to you surgeon immediately.
