The colon is also called the large intestine. The ileum (last part of the small intestine) connects to the cecum (first part of the colon) in the lower right abdomen. The rest of the colon is divided into four parts: The ascending colon travels up the right side of the abdomen. The transverse colon runs across the abdomen. The descending colon travels down the left abdomen. The sigmoid colon is a short curving of the colon, just before  the rectum. the   colon   removes   water,   salt,   and   some   nutrients   forming   stool.   Muscles   line the   colon's   walls,   squeezing   its   contents   along.   Billions   of   bacteria   coat   the colon and its contents, living in a healthy balance with the body.
