If you have any problems or notice any new symptoms between your appointments, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
At the present time a lot of research is being carried out to find the best way of following up people who have had rectal cancer. The pattern of timing of hospital visits and tests and the amount of follow-up done by GPs varies considerably.
Many people find that they get very anxious before their appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support from family, friends or one of the organisations| listed during this time.
For people whose treatment is over apart from regular check-ups, our sections on recovery| and life after cancer treatment| give useful advice on how to keep healthy and adjust to life after cancer.
