Hello Fruit 334, welcome to the online community, I’m glad you made it here, and hope this is the beginning of getting support from others with a similar experience for you. It sounds good that you are stable and that Chemo is finished, however I remember once for me saying to someone I was stable and for me at the time it was a disappointment as I wanted to see a further reduction, so I’m hoping my words don’t upset you. I’m sorry to hear you are still in pain though and if I understand your post perhaps having side effects?
I looked to find your profile to see what type of cancer you had but you hadn’t completed it. I was thinking a cancer type group may bring the support that you need especially as you say you have finished chemo. So I thought I would see if I could give some tips on getting the best from the site.
It helps others chatting to you if you complete your profile, You can update your profile by clicking on your name/avatar in the top right-hand side of the screen, then selecting 'Edit Profile.'

Joining groups, you’ve found the cancer experiences to find this group chemo, there is also a cancer types which you can look through to find for your type, you can click on the link I’ve made and take a look.

Theres a Macmillan info and support section that may help for each cancer type and lots of helpful info for example this info on the drug I think you’ve been taking which includes a bit about having constipation as a common side effect and the suggestion of what to do if you are suffering from that. It may be action you have already taken but I thought the link might help.
The Macmillan support line is really helpful in addition to the help here from others affected by cancer.
