Reason #7
Contrary to some myths, you do still have to watch your weight after you’ve had colon surgery.

Some people have told me that I probably won’t ever put on extra weight again since I have an “itty bitty” colon now. Although I’d love this side effect, it’s not true. The small intestine is the area that absorbs many of the nutrients (and not so nutrients) from food and sends them on their way to the rest of the body. The large intestine is basically a glorified clothes dryer that eliminates the water and bulks up the stool.
