In brief: Yes, it is possible

After any miscarriage or abortion, it is possible to have some pregnancy tissue retained within the uterus.
Many times it will not be noticeable to the patient. "retained products of conception" may be discovered by saline ultrasound or hysterosalpingogram. This may require additional surgery, such as a d & c or hysteroscopy, where a small camera is inserted into the uterus.

In brief: Yes

It is possible to have some retained tissue in the uterus after a medical termination of pregnancy.
A saline infusion sonogram, hsg, or hysteroscopy can help determine if this happened.
