Keep them well watered and wait for the new shoots to show. Bamboo is difficult to kill at the best of times, being out of the soil for a few days isn't enough to kill it. Just be patient.
And it is very unlikely to shoot from the old canes, but should send up new shoots from the roots, once they are growing happily. That may take a while though.
For most woody type plants. A gentle scratch with the thumbnail at the outer surface of branch or twig. If alive. It will be green and moist. Otherwise it's dead. For longer branches etc. Gradually cutting back can give you a clue. The uppermost growth might look dead. Snip it back until you come to green undergrowth.
A semi shaded position would be best Jemtomato.
