Having a pacemaker should not affect ordinary activities significantly. If the pacemaker is below your collarbone, upper extremity exercise such as weightlifting may cause a change in the pacing mode. While this is not a problem to cause concern, it may be well to see what happens when pectoral muscles are contracting with upper extremity exercise. This can be done in the doctor's office.
