Has anyone ever had tendonitis in your elbows from playing the bass. I have been playing for eight years, and for the past two I have developed a sever case of tendonitis. I had surgery on my left elbow June 11th to clear scar tissue and relocate the tendon, and the same will be done to my right elbow on the 11th of August. I have been at wits end for the past couple fo months, and a subject to not being able to play my bass again, and was wondering if anyone has had this happen to them. Very desperate for help. Thank you for your time. k2ski2k P.S. I have been diagnosed with tendonitis of the medial epicondylitus. Tendonitis by definition is a degeneratory function by which tendons breakdown, due to repetative motion. I have been diagnosed with this for 2 years. In those two years I have had cortisone treatments, 3/elbow. Ultrasound therapy, and celebrex, a common anti-inflammatory medication. None have which worked and therefore surgery was considered the only option. I am not a weightlifter, never have been. If I have, only in short bursts throughout the year, never constant. So my wondering is if anyone has had the non-responsive tendonitis of the elbow. The pain comes from the inside of both elbows(when stretching out palm side up).
