ascending colon

Thanx in advance for any knowledge.  I had removal of ascending colon (lap assist) 5 weeks ago & have recovered well (still sore) but back to my exercise & fitness routine.  I function exactly like I did before (BM's & all) & would not know anything is "missing" if I had no scarring or soreness.  Question:  Does my digestion take place in the same way it did when I had an ascending colon?  I think I understood that the ascending colon removes water before waste travels on - so now what happens?  Has my metabolism changed?  I lost a few pounds (from 92 to 87) will I gain that back?  That's only 5 pounds but it's an important 5 pounds to me - I didn't need to lose it - Five weeks later I have not gained it back - will I in the future?
