Yes, it's possible! Your chest pain can be from any of the following causes: PE, heart attack, heartburn, ulcer, pneumonia, pneumothorax, medication reaction, or other causes. You should call your surgeon ASAP for immediate consultation. If they are unavailable then go to ER immediately for evaluation for possible PE or other causes.
