@vangator. What's in the cream? Most likely it's a topical NSAID, like ibuprofen or similar. Same cautions apply coz the drug seeps into the bloodstream, the kidneys and blood vessels.

Also Eucalyptus Oil is a great pain killer and may dull the pain so you can golf. You'd have to spray it on your elbow every half hour or so during the round. Since my pain is basically gone, I'm not sure about the elbows, but it is great on sore or stiff necks. I get them all the time. One spray and the pain is instantly gone. I've tried everything and this is the only thing that works.
Eucalyptus Oil is good for headaches too. My wife and daughter get bad headaches (possibly migraines). they've found Kwan Loong Oil works better. Both have a slight burn on the skin, but it's infinitely better than the previous pain.
Can you tell I'm into homeopathic cures? I try to stay away from pills. I'm almost 60 and take no medication.
Finally got it done on Tuesday !!!!!!!.(Surgery) No golf for 3-4 months needless to say.
NO MORE ICE, CREAMS, PILLS (EXCEPT PAIN KILLERS FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS).
Time will tell, but 10 months of constant pain was too much to bear. I did play all summer, but not well. PT starts in a couple of weeks.
I'll keep you posted.
