Has anyone had Granulomas on or around their stoma?

Posted by fastrategizer @fastrategizer, Jul 16, 2021

Has anyone had granulomas? I believe that I have a few on/around my stoma. I see the Dr next week and will discuss then, but I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to clean/handle them.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Ostomy group.

Hi @fastrategizer
There are a few discussions in the skin health regarding granulomas. I added them below for you to check out.

Mayo has given some good information regarding it.

How long has this been going on? Are you currently on any medication that may exacerbate it?

@fastrategizer, did you see your doctor about the granulomas? What was recommended?

I haven’t yet. I’ve left two messages with the wound ostomy nurses but haven’t heard back. I meet with my surgeon on Monday and I’ll talk to him about them. I’m only guessing that’s what they are.

The surgeon and nurse confirmed what they were but were not concerned about them. Told me if they got worse to let them know. Thanks for following up
