Thank you for writing to us.
You should not directly think about surgery. I recommend that you try RICE therapy to help you first. Here are the parts of RICE:
Rest the area to prevent the elbow from getting more injury
Ice the elbow for 15 minutes at a time every hour
Compress the elbow with an elbow sleeve or crepe bandage
Elevate the elbow to allow blood flow back to the heart to reduce the swelling
Take tablet Paracetamol to help reduce the swelling as well
Hope this helps you. All the best.
