In brief: Possible

Yes it is possible.
If the pericardium was not totally stripped then there is a potential for recurrence of symptoms.

In brief: Constrictive pericar

After effective stripping of the pericardium, the constriction from the pericardium is generally relieved.
Sometimes there is associated fibrosis in the myocardium with mixed constriction/restriction; in these situations the stripping may not completely relieve the symptoms.
