The large intestine or colon connects the small intestine to the anus, where stool passes through the large bowel. There are a couple of diseases why someone might have part of their large bowel removed:
Neoplasm: Abnormal mass off tissue that could be cancerous
Diverticulitis: Inflammatory disease that causes the lining of the intestine to become inflamed.
Crohn’s disease: A chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the digestive tract.
Colon cancer or Polyps: Polyps could be found in the colon or rectum, which could be cancerous.
