First follow up is mostly local clinical examination. Radiological investigations like ct or mri is done every 6 months to one year on respective follow up schedule. Rest of the time , general clinical and per vaginal and per rectal  examination is done. If any doubts of recurrence or any complain at any other site is there, then accordingly tests can be adviced before the speculated time of regular checkup.
