ICD ? Maybe to Late ?

Good Morning to All

About three weeks ago I had a ICD which is also a pacemaker implanted and all went well. My EF since my MI eleven years ago has been as low as 22 and as high as 37-40 depending on my physical condition weigh and so on. I am EXTREMELY ACTIVE an although I have slowed down I still do everything I always have done. I thought that I had asked as many questions as I could BUT. I was told no cell phone on the left side, no hanging over alternators or motors with in 6" and so on.
So now I go for my 2 week check up and all has changed. I am told no outside if it's over 80 degrees (I am a hot person who sweats like crazy) or under 40 what are you kidding me? Absolutely NO handheld motor devises, chainsaws, weed eaters, leaf blowers and so on, WHAT? Absolutely no lifting nothing over 10 pounds, No way! What little money I can make is with firewood and farming outside when it's hot and firewood when it cold.
I am told it's not the magnetic field with the gas engines but the leakage of the low voltage from the spark plug that flows thru you body. Now that this thing is in is all the installing dr. will do is direct me to the maker of the product.
Does anyone here have a ICD and still use chain saws and such.
