You are not on your own – many women feel like this. You had cancer, you are not a fraud it happened to you so it doesn’t matter what treatments other people had. There is support and help out there. Check if there is a Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust support group near you or attend one of the Lets Meet days. My patients who attend the support group tell me it’s fantastic as the other women there ‘get it’, they don’t need to explain how they feel. There may be a survivorship/living with and after cancer services within your local area that you could access; there are courses on living well after cancer that you can access run by Penny Brohn - http://www.pennybrohncancercare.org/
I’m not sure why your armpits and groins ache, you did have a lymph node dissection it could be that you lymphatic system has been compromised maybe this happens when you are rundown?
The wind problem could be due to some adhesions that may have formed during surgery, stress can cause irritable bowel type symptoms such as painful wind, have you changed your diet since your surgery? If it doesn’t settle it’s worth mentioning to your GP or hospital team so they can reassure you.
