Tennis Elbow Surgery recovery and General Anesthesia?

I will be having surgery this week to fix my chronic (three years) tennis elbow. I tried getting a cortisone shot but it only made my condition worse. I want to know what the recovery from the surgery will be like. I am told by my surgeon that he will be trimming the tendon (ligament?) shaving the bone where it attaches and then reattaching the tendon. I start back at school three hours away from home two weeks after my surgery. Am I cutting it too close? I also am a little nervous about the general anesthesia. I know I will be ok but I guess I just don’t know what to expect and it is making me nervous.

Also, I don’t play tennis but I thought there might be more people over here who have had experience with this.

    I’m sorry that I don’t know much about this situation, but you should ask your doctor about the recovery, he would be happy to answer them since it is his job to help you and make you feel comfortable about all of it at the same time. Here is this online discussion that I found about some people who had tennis elbow surgery http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=108343
    Good Luck on your recovery!
