In brief: Less likely...
It is much less likely to get a recurrent pe, as long as the warfarin is maintained at the proper level.
It is less likely but not impossible so see your doctor if you have recurrent symptoms.

In brief: Yes, but
It is rare, and usually only associated with a cancer like leukemia.
