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 doing anything that puts strain on the arm.
It gets more sore a day or two after playing, then settles down again.It has actually not gotten any worse than it was in the middle of my layoff.
At my last visit he told me it will likely not go away, so plan on getting surgery when I want to end my golfing season.
I am planning on it in September.
