After 3 years without recurrence surveillance dropped way off - they started to suggest I was likely cured at that point. After that I think I had a CT scan (pelvis and torso) one more time at the 4 year mark. At 5 years I was basically graduated from the program. After that it was coloscopy every 3 years (and supposedly for the rest of my life, although I might drop to every 5). They're happy to see me at the oncology clinic if I really want to go - they say - but they don't recommend it or require anything further. It's just the colonoscopies now. I see my primary care internal medicine doc for an annual physical, which includes bloodwork and CEA level.
