Could it have been something you ate?
It's interesting there was no blood on the toilet paper.
I guess it could be from maybe in the sigmoid area where the stool sits before it's "downloaded" into the rectum for evacuation...
Could be a polyp?
Could be a hemmie that was kind of squeezed during the last part of the bm...but I would think it would be on the toilet paper as well.
Is Lialda in a red/maroon coloured casing similar to Asacol? Could be that. When did you stop the Asacol?

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
