Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
Oily yellowish grease coming out of anus suggests that there is a problem with fat absorption and hence the same is coming out of the anus.
Now fat absorption is a function of liver and gallbladder. If it doesn't work well, then the oily fat will come out of the anus and the same will present as in your case.

You need to visit a gastro surgeon. You should get an USG abdomen done to find out the status of your gall bladder.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
