Yes Frank, unfortunately you are completely right. Even in cases like mine, where I do have private health insurance, I live in a place (Ireland) where tennis medicine and generally accessible sports medicine and knowledge are very very scant! Although my actual surgeon was excellent, he had no idea really when I would be able to realistically go back to tennis (6-8 weeks for most activities was what he said). So my PT, who isn't experienced in tennis herself, and I played touch and go for a number of weeks and luckily got the combination right of what to do. I did find it helpful to supplement some of her exercises and to check the Rehab protocols by well known sports medicine institutions in the U.S.
