On some medical site some "knowledgebla" people are saying that tennis elbow takes 6-8 weeks to recover from, golfer's elbow (medial epycodilitis) 2-3 weeks. Don't believe this BS. Medial epyco...is much worse than tennis elbow. I had TE and recovered from it and never stopped playing, just switched to 2HBH, heavy racket, soft string and was carefull when serving. With Medial you neither can hit forehand nor serve, so you effectively cannot play and I am not playing for..already 4th!!!!!!! month, and GE is still there and it looks like it's gonna be with me for a year at least. Beware of the pain on inside of your elbow, it's not lighter condition as they say, it can cripple you for long time.
