In brief: Yes

I am not sure what you mean by radioactive medicine.
Radioactive materials are given for certain heart tests or at times for treatment, such as to treat an overactive thyroid. Either way, the presence of rheumatic heart disease would have nothing to do with the use of radiatioactive substances.
