I was in the same situation like you but worse, 2 years ago.
I went through many so called friendly rackets (PK, Volkl C10 Pro, etc).
The only racket I thought helped me recover is the Wilson KFive 108 (triad technology) strung with NG Mains and Soft multi @42/38.
I now string at 52/48, NG mains/multi or synthetics.
I can play and hit really hard with a lot of topspin and my TE/GE never complained again.
I am currently using Pacific Classic Gut @52 and Head rip control crosses @48.
I firmly believe that comfort is significantly more dependent on the racket than on strings. That is my personal experience.
I also tried Head Microgel Extreme Pro strung with NG mains but I sold it because it hurt my elbow.
