Been dealing with this for 7 months. The pic of my elbow shows the swelling around tricep tendon/elbow. Orthopedic says the swelling IS NOT the tendon, and has NOTHING to do with it. I call BS. He really has no clue how to deal with what I have so he referred me to a sport specialist which I am going to see next week(2hours away). I get pain when trying to straighten arm with resistance. I can do pushups but I cant workout triceps...I stopped working out upperbody a while ago. Just doing self rehab right now. Light triceps a few times a week.
TRIED: Physical therapy, NSAIDS, R.I.C.E. XRAY/CATSCAN/MRI came out fine.
WANT: treatment, hopefully this next sports specialist has something because the previous orthopedics only had cortisone and anthroscopic surgery.
I believe if the cortisone is injected correctly, I should be fine. Its not like you inject it RIGHT INTO the tendon....that would be bad.
