There are very few things we can't have, mostly only things that involve magnets. 

one thing has nothing to do with the other.

The one thing you do need to ask about is MRI's.  The newer pacers and newer mri machines supposedly it isnt a problem but I was "raised" in my 30 years with these not to go into an MRI.  The opinion swings wide on that topic.  But blood tests, cat scans, allergy shots, you name it you can have it..

It is just over 10 years since a dual lead device was implanted for complete heart block. It has worked perfectly and I have traveled well near two million miles internationally since then.
