The small intestine is typically around 20 to 24 feet or about six meters long. It lies below the stomach in the middle of the abdomen, and much of it is coiled and suspended within a thin layer of fat to allow it flexibility and mobility. Also called the small bowel, it is composed of three distinct sections: the duodenum connects the stomach to the rest of the small intestine and is about 25 centimeters (0.25m) long. The jejunum is the central section and is anywhere from 1 to 2 meters long. The ilium bridges the jejunum and the large intestine and is 2 to 3 meters long.

What will happen if no small intestine?

The large intestine has, as its major function, the removal of water from the digestive tract at the end of the digestive process. (The small intestine is the primary absorber of nutrients from out of the digested material.) Without a large intestine, you'd have a much more liquid bowel emission. And you'd need to drink more water, too. It's not the best deal in the world, but it is something that can be lived with and just requires "management" on the part of an individual who has, due to accident or disease, lost the large or a large portion of the large intestine. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on the large intestine.
