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!

Dear Toky, I finished my 2nd batch of patches a while ago now, and thought I would like to let you know that my bursitis and almost completely resolved! I think the little bit of fluid there is, is just being absorbed normally now. So thank you very much for dealing with my query so […]

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.

Hi Just a quick note that I feel I needed to write about the OSMO Patches. In September I tripped over while running and fell on my knee which left me with a fractured bone at the back of my knee which in turn ruptured my cruciate ligament. Although back on track now after various […]

Hi Toky, The bursitis patches are starting to offer relief for my son’s heel. Thank you so much. He is finally looking on the bright side. Over the past month he has had 2 drainages, 2 cortisone shots, and referred to 2 different specialists. The end result was either an operation to shave the bone, […]

Good morning We have been using your patches for a few days now and we find them helpful. They are draining fluid from the cyst and that is a good sign. Regards
