From the author:

A colon resection is a surgery that involves removal of part — or all — of the colon. This procedure can be performed for various reasons, including a block in the intestine due to scar tissue, colon cancer, diverticular disease, familial polyposis or ulcerative colitis. The colon helps your body in the absorption of minerals and water. People recovering from a colon resection require specific diets, including small, frequent meals and temporary low-fiber intake.
