Apr 2, 2017 Was diagnosed with Bursitis in my elbow a few weeks ago, and was just curious if any of you had this or went through this? From the x-ray it looks like my tendon is completely torn off my elbow. Not sure how long its been like this, but my elbow has always had pain in it for years. Its been very tolerable, and usually only got sore when training triceps. Anyways, going to an orthopedic surgeon next week and see what needs to be done. Only reason I went in to begin with is because I had a scab on elbow, must have bumped into something, have no idea, probably from work. Anyways, it got infected, and swelled up the size of an orange, and they diagnosed me with cellulitis. Was on anti-biotics for 10 days, and the swelling/fluid has seemed to gone done alot. Im assuming I need surgery, I guess I wont know till the surgeon looks at it. Basically just want to know if any of you had surgery to correct it, or just deal with it at home. Been icing it whenever I can, usually in the evenings after work before i goto sleep. Taking anti-inflammatory meds and pain meds as well. Doesnt hurt or anything, just trying to be careful not to bump it.
