If I crops up again I'll have the tendon removed.
Considering it's just a muscular strain or tendinitis (if it truly is lateral epicondylitis), PT should always help. If it didn't, the likelihood was your PT didn't intervene correctly. Have you ever modified your daily activities? How about worked to manage the muscle tone of the musculature? Accessory motion, which is frequently forgotten, is key for proper muscle mechanics.
