Not enough info: What was treated with the chemotherapy? What was the specific cancer and what was its stage? Start with your primary care or oncologist and have testing done. Do not delay.

No online answer: EMA/CO is most often used for aggressive gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN), usually choriocarcinoma. Long term diffuse body pains are not an expected side effect. A Gyn-oncologist should confirm there is no recurrence and then an evaluation from a good physical medicine, rheumatology, or even pain management doc will hopefully find the cause and a way to make you feel better.
