I think that you should have had a coagulation studies done to see what exactly caused your pulmonary embolism.
There are a number of hereditary conditions like factor V Leiden among other conditions, that can cause one's blood to be thicker which must be investigated and if proven you should be on medications to prevent any such future episodes from happening.
So I agree with you on this that this must be investigated further to try and rule out an condition that you may have which could be the cause of your increased clotting problem.
Let me know if you have more questions.

I am also getting a squeezing type pain under my right breast but very intermitantly its sharp when it comes but I feel fine other than that coincidense or possibly problem? This has been last 3 days but as I said very intermitant

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
I do not think that this pain is related to your past history of PE.
I think it is either a muscular pain or a skeletal pain but one that should most likely go away in due course of time.
So it's not something to worry about too much.
Let me know if you have more questions.

sorry I put right side its left side

Again, it does not seem likely to be anything serious particularly with the nature of the pain that you have mentioned in that it is sharp in intermittent which usually does not indicate anything serious.
