I fell 1.5 metres onto the road, landing on my patella. The pain was severe, and after two weeks on crutches I was left with a fluid-filled bursa the size of half a golf-ball on my knee. I already had a swelling just below my kneecap for five years, and another specialist had thought this was probably a lipoma, or benign fatty tumour. An orthopaedic specialist at A&E told me it wasn’t a good idea to drain the fluid from the bursa due to the possibility of infection, and that the ‘lipoma’ could only be removed surgically.
I’ve used 16 of your patches so far, in conjunction with acupuncture. The bursa began to shrink from the first patch, and is now almost gone. I’ve been able to return to my Taiji classes. What is more surprising is that the ‘lipoma’ also has almost vanished: probably this ‘lipoma’ was in fact another bursitis, and not a lipoma at all.
So, no invasive needle drainage for me, no surgery, and I’m recovering fast. I’ve ordered another packet of OSMO patches, just to finish the job: I am very impressed.
Real accounts by real people. Hear what they have to say!

Bakers Cyst on the knee
Hello Toky, 4 more patches to go, and I can report great improvement! I can bend the knee, the lump in the back is so much smaller, (by half?) I think. Not even thinking of a drain needle and cortisone shot at this point. Your explanations are a little hard for me to follow medically, […]
