Long term survival issues

I am thrilled to be a 22 year survivor of advanced testicular cancer. I accept & live with the side affects of chemo, radiation & multiple surgeries. I am finding that recent changes in how my body & mind work (or don't work properly!) have got doctors perplexed. For example - joint aches & pains that have no apparent cause.  I was wondering if anyone has had similar experiences or knows of any research that may have been done on long term effects  - mainly on chemo.

As a formed Cancer Connect volunteer, and trained in Major Illness psychology, I know that every person experiences & deals with cancer differently. I am looking for any shared experiences & hints in dealing with long term ageing after chemo.
