Pain after chemo, radiotherapy and op

My husband has oesophageal cancer and is experiencing a lot of different pain. At first it was stomach pain that seems to be responding to pantoprazolem tabs. His main pain seems to be muscular and this pain travels. Mostly on his upper torso. Has anyone else experienced similar. From what I've read pain seems to be common and I am thinking its how you manage it. So far we have not asked for any medications. Should we? Will consistent light exercise help muscular pain?
