According to the history of your situation, yes, it might be related. However, if you have currently done a chest CT than the situation might be more clear. Mostly this might be related to bacterial bronchitis too. So better for you to consult your doctor for this to be sure.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
