Thanks folks, I may try the cream, nothing to lose since I am not going in to get cut until September.   I taty away from mats since I had this issue, but rarely hit on them prior to the problem.
My understanding is that it can be bone spurs, scar tissue, damaged tendon or a combination of the three. Sometimes grinding the bone down is necessary.   There are surgery videos of the procedure on you tube, not a real simple (looking) procedure to say the least.   I'll know more when I go under the knife ,I am planning on September.   Maybe someone who has had it done can chime in on recovery, amount of time before you can play again, etc.
Thanks, but laying off for 6 months gave me no relief, and am not much worse pain-wise after playing for the last 2 1/2 months about 3 times a week. I did up my dosage of Naproxen to the max however - two 500 mg. a day.   I tend to be impatient, and after reading  posts where some people have taken a year off I figure I can have the surgery and be back playing in less time than that.   My doctor is the one that recommended that I wait until the end of summer so I could...
Wanted to add that sometimes it's worse in the morning when I wake up, even after doing nothing the day before.   The doctor gave me a wrist brace to wear at night as he said the position of the wrist at night while sleeping can aggravate the elbow. ( I take the elbow band off at night)   I know when I forget to wear the wrist brace  it definitely feels worse in the morning.
Just wanted to share my golfers elbow update. (Left elbow, right handed golfer)      I have had this since September of last year. Did the ice, rest, PT thing and did not play for 6 months over the winter it never went away. I got 2 shots, both lasted only 5-6 weeks.   As for my current activity, the orthopedic doctor I am seeing said "do whatever you want, my experience is that you won't make it worse"  so I play 2-3 times a week  --- I do wear a band when golfing or...
I had the same problem with a set of name brand grips I got at at Rockbottom Golf once and they were junk. I think they were Callaway, but they were so thin you could feel and see the tape lines underneath them. (I use the straight wide tape method). I had to use so much solvent to get them on I got high on it. Never again at RB, I buy them at Golfsmith now.
I usually go alone but am often paired with others. When I am told that I will be paired I usually ask for a twosome if possible. My experience is that 3somes expect to be in just their group more than 2somes.    You may have to wait a little, but I think it's worth it. If they are beginners or hackers, you can kill time looking for balls or whatever.   Also, if you get someone that's not your style you're not in the cart with him you only see him twice - tee and green !
Thanks, I was told by both MD's I saw not to waste my money on PT but I am going to go on my own.  It only costs me 15 bucks a pop and it's worth a try.   I think some GP MD's are reluctant to refer people to specialists and try to treat things they should not .I have good medical coverage so that's not an issue.  I lost 6 weeks after getting a shot and not wearing a brace or doing exercises before I saw an ortho MD. Lesson learned.
Thanks for all the help, wish I had found this forum sooner !
yes , got an X ray it shows "normal" which I am told means tendon issues that don't show on an x ray.   Is this site slow today, or maybe the inet in general or my computer ?
