Yours is a complicated situation, given the breast cancer, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. What you have just experienced, “indigestion” and left sided chest pain might be related to the kayaking but there is no way for us to know for sure. If it is, the answer is yes, it could be heart disease or indigestion, musculoskeletal pain of the chest wall or somehow related to the prior cancer and its treatment but, even, after careful examination, it can be difficult for skilled medical personnel, including doctors, to distinguish between the two without further testing.
My strong advice is that you seek medical care immediately, either from your primary care doctor or at the nearest Hospital Emergency Room. In either case do not transport yourself.
