The Ascending colon is on the
right side of the pelvis, and the lowest part of it is called the cecum, the part of the
colon where the small intestine expels its contents into the colon in a liquid form. It is
the part of the colon with the largest diameter, and is most effective in absorbing water.
When taking an enema you need to fill and distend
the entire colon from the anus as far as the ascending colon. This can require anywhere
from 2 qts. to as much as 4 qts. or more of solution in healthy adults.
