cervical and ovarian cancer-joint pain

Last Thanksgiving, I had a tetered ovarian tumor (13cm) removed which ruptured while removing.  At that time, they found three cancerous spots in my cervix.  These spots were later determined to be an independently growing cancer (different cell structure from the ovarian). They removed everything Ovaries etc..  I completed my chemotherapy and radition.  My question is about the joint pain in my knees, hips and fingers?  Throughout the day I have extreme stiffness and aches.  Is there something I can do to help with this pain?  Both my radition doctor and onocologist doctor did not offer any suggestions for easing the pain.  I also want to get my joints healthy again!

See your primary care doctor, and ask about osteoarthritis or other reasons for these joint pains.  They can help you with it.
