Tennis elbow problem, PLEASE HELP!!!?

I’ve been told that I have tennis elbow, Wierd I don;t play tennis HUH. I’ve done physical threrapy on it and I’ve had 2 cortizone shots. the last one was on Tuesday. The pain has not stopped yet. My doctor said if it didn’t quit bothering me, he’ll refer me to a orthopedic doctor. What can they do for this? I’m sick of pain pills and antiflamatory pills, doesn’t help much either. Any suggestions PLEASE!!!!

    I had it in both elbows and I too had cortisone shots and p.t. In my case I ended up having surgery on both elbows, they went in, cut the tendon (shortened actually ) and reattached them at a different point. This was about eight years ago and I haven’t had a bit of trouble at all, and no more pain. I don’t play tennis either, it just comes from repetitive motions and over straining on a daily basis.
