I had a pace maker implant 2 weeks ago. I do not know what kind. My family doctor ordered a chest x-ray...is this safe?

Yes it is OK to get X-rays and CT scans. On the other hand MRI's are not. Doctors sometimes forget you have a pace maker and consider MRI's. You need to remind them that you can not have MRI's because of your pace maker.

Does your doctor know about the pacemaker? if yes, then you should be ok.
Would you really trust your life to comments on this forum?
