In brief: Depends

What type of cancer was it? Your surgeon and oncologist should have the surveillance information for you.

In brief: INTESTINAL CANCER

To get follow-ups for intestinal cancer treatments, you have to ask the doctor or doctors who have been treating you.
If the surgery was for a small growth, it would not be as often as for a larger, more extensive cancer. Do ask your doctor and surgeon about this. I'm sure they told you when and how often to return.
