Unhappy Is something wrong here? Worried about cleaning condition of rectum

I need to know if the rectum is usually "clean", which means no small chunks of fecal matter on the walls of the mucosa? I saw something on TV where a doctor said that usually the rectum is clean unless you're having a bowel movement. Does this mean that there should not be any remnants in there?
I'm asking because I had some problems with hemorrhoids and the doc told me to apply some cream in the rectum and I always used gloves to apply it and I remember that in the rectum I always felt stuff. First I thought it's hemorrhoids but it wasn't!!! It was crap chunks and this even though I had just crapped and in spite of this there were stil small crap chunks which were left behind. When I watched this I remembered this and now I ask myself if this is normal or not.

This is really awkward. I mean I have been to proctologists a few times and they usually also take a look inside with their metal tube or whatever this is and actually I always thought that it's at least clean in there but when I imagine that they see those remnants which i could feel in there then this is not only totally awkward but also negative in terms of checking out the rectum. I mean if the rectum isn't really clean then they also cannot see if there is anything wrong with it.
