About a decade ago, I was suffering from chronic tennis elbow and had an MRI that showed a partial tear; I continue to have problems from it. Now, I also have developed chronic golfer's elbow on the same arm. I am considering surgery and saw a specialist last week. I think it's called Tommy John surgery. Has anyone had this surgery? If so, could you please describe the length of the healing process and let me know if you regained full use of your arm? Many thanks!
