Breast pain and the menopause

hi, I was diagnosed in 2014, had surgery, chemo, herceptin and radiotherapy and now on tamoxifen. My herceptin treatment finished in Feb and the chemo/radio about a year ago. I am still experiencing breast pain and discomfort in the surgery side and was wondering if this is normal? Also my periods stopped in January 2015 (I was 39 at the time) and I am wondering if I am now going through the menopause but don’t know how to tell.
