I get sick and feel pain. What to do?

The problem is as follows: 4 months ago I had my appendicitis cut out and the first days after the operation were very painful, but after a week everything was fine. A week after arriving home, I wake up from severe pain in the anus (as it turned out later, the problem was small), but at the time of the pain attack I was very scared that I would be operated on again and this fear did not allow me to live for 4 months in a row , only the pain in that place passed and began to appear in all different parts of the body. That would not hurt me - before I did not think about pain and it passed. And now if I have a banal headache, then I think that I will have an operation and I have something terrible. The stomach ached, and in the side, and the head, and below the abdomen. But as soon as one pain passes, another appears and I constantly think about it and, accordingly, it only intensifies. There was a case, every day the head began to hurt more and more, and after a week it was already hellish, I thought that these were blood vessels and truly believed in it, and after numerous checks it turned out that it was a pain of tension due to the fact that I was thinking about it and after a couple of days the pain gradually went away, after the conviction that there was nothing.
And even when I understand that the new "sore" is my invention, I still think that suddenly it is a real illness, but I will think that there is nothing and I will only aggravate the situation, and after the checks it turns out that nothing happened.
All this began when quarantine began and there was a lot of free time.
The psychiatrist made a diagnosis, something like suspiciousness, disorder, stress, neurosis ( only in clever words).
What can I do, how not to think about pain and live as before?
