      If you're not on an anticoagulant they can return. If you have a history of PE's and currently have chest pain then that needs investigating urgently. I would suggest you go to A&E tonight. They will have radiologists there that can access or repeat and read your CT scans then either reassure you or begin treatment immediately.

    from my experience if you progressively get out breath (even walking up and down stairs) and have low energy/feel weak- see a doctor asap. atb take care.
