General Surgeon 's  Response

The stool of such consistency with orange sand particles indicates a possible issue with enzyme problems involving the GIT as bile drainage system in form of biliary narrowing or else.

Basic tests of stool microscopy with ultrasound of the abdomen & pelvis is mandatory to proceed ahead.
