Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

We cannot safely or reliably answer this question for you specifically, you will need to ask your health care provider.

But there are many dos and don't with pacemakers so take a look at this article here (cut and paste the link) http://www.heart.org/en/health-topics/arrhythmia/prevention--treatment-of-arrhythmia/devices-that-may-interfere-with-icds-and-pacemakers
