In brief: Probably Blood test

You did not have chemotherapy , you do not have lymph node spread in you stage, curative resection was done , you cea levels will be normal , end of the yea rwill elide, pet scan is a better modality to detect metastasis.
You very good chance of being cured but require colonoscopic examinations.
