In early November, 2008, I was shocked when by chance I looked at my right elbow and saw that it had a swollen lump almost half the size of a tennis ball. I had no recollection of bumping it or otherwise causing damage to it and was really quite surprised because it was painless. That afternoon I visited my local doctor who explained that it was a bursa and that it could be surgically drained but it would more than likely re-occur. I asked what other alternatives there were and he replied that possibly a cortisone injection would help which I disregarded because it was mainly to reduce pain.
Like many others who have written to you, I used the internet to obtain as much information as I could regarding my condition and what treatments, if any, were available. Among many various items of information, I found at your website which absolutely blew my mind and actually found hard to believe despite all the various testimonials which totally supported the product. I subsequently contacted the suppliers by email to ascertain what the “landed” price would be to New Zealand and decided that it was more or less the same price as a visit to my doctor, SO, decided to “give it a go” and ordered the patches which were coming from Australia.
When the patches had not arrived in 15 days due to local postage problems, my doctor drained the bursa by needle but it re-filled within 3/4 days as he predicted. Shortly afterwards, the patches arrived and were immediately used with my scepticism. The morning after my 1st patch I could not believe my eyes as it was full and covered with similar coloured fluid as the doctor had removed by needle and the same thing happened on each of the next 3 days to the point that the bursa reduced to almost normal. I have not had to use another patch since then and my elbow is back to normal and has not refilled in the past 9 days so I think I can safely presume the problem has been fixed. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone with similar problems.

Baker's cyst behind knee and calf pain
I’ve had a Baker’s cyst behind my right knee, caused by a knee injury, for 4 years. It is excruciatingly painful. I received cortisone injections every 3 months to ease the pain, but to no avail. Luckily, I stumbled upon your OSMO patches online. I put one behind my knee and one on the front […]

Bakers cyst on the knee
I got the patches yesterday evening. I have had five knee operations on my right knee and have arthritis. I also have a bakers cyst on the back of my knee and off to the front. I tried it last night and I was surprised at the results and it actually took away some of the swelling. I work out every other day and I think these will help.
