After a few years of a weak left arm and perpetual golfers elbow, I finally got a MRI after a lump was discovered just off the interior elbow joint. Results were:
High-grade tear of common flexor tendon at medial epicondyle, with tendinosis.
Moderate tendinosis of the common externsor tendon at the lateral eplicondyle with intermediate to hihg-grade insertional tearing.
Likely partial thickness tearing of ulnar attachment of the radial collateral ligament. Mild distal biceps tendonsis.
I don't know what all that means, but in skier terms, it may be why my down arm on my offside lean has sucked for the last few seasons, and it messes up my golf swing too.
Anyone have this before? Surgery? PT? Recovery?
Waiting on appointment with Ortho to go over and discuss risks if I wait until end of summer and have another sucky ski season losing all my angle out of 1 ball.
