Should I get Medial Epicondylitis Surgery?

Ok well I was diagnosed by my pediatrician a year ago that I had Medial Epicondylitis, or elbow tendinitis. I am only 13, and symptoms happened after I pitched in a baseball game. So I went to the doctor and he diagnosed me. Now it’s about 12-13 months later and im back to playing baseball. My elbow has been bothering me the whole year. It is my inner elbow by the way. I can throw, without harm, but after a while, I’d say after 15 throws, I feel the pain in my inner elbow again. I cannot pitch, my elbow feels really delicate and uncomfortable compared to my left elbow.

I have been doing physical exercises like pushups arm curls occasionally, and some Advil, and Aleve. Nothing really works, so I am kind of scared that I might need surgery for it. Is it risky? Like will I ever be able to play baseball again?

I do have mild pain when I make a muscle too.

    any surgery is dangerous. ask your dr. he might have alternative method for you to try first.

    You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I am taking a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
