One thing you may not have tried... Check out my thread titled "is it tendinitis or tendinosis?" I am a physical therapist who is fairly familiar with tendon problems, and understanding degenerative tendinopathies might help you understand why your problem is such a challenge to recover from. The treatment I eventually describe is called ASTYM, and it has a success rate of about 90% with lateral epicondylosis. As a tennis player myself, I treat alot of people from my club, so my reputation depends on it! This specific treatment can really get you started, and you may find that some of the other recommendations like raquet type, hand position, and strings can then really make a difference. (Those subjects are definitely NOT something I know about). Anyway, check out the thread and see what you think. I have an idea how frustrated you feel. I was out of the game for 7 months with a shoulder injury and just recently got back to playing. Can't get any games off my 15 year old son, but I'll keep trying.
