tricep tendon repair rehab....need help!!

I had a tricep tendon tear approximately 18 months ago. I went through two surgeries and extensive rehab. I have alot of my strength back considering my surgeon advises against benching over 315 lbs. Now, my problem, I still have noticeable swelling behind my elbow but no pain. Looks like fluid build-up and was told to get a "tight" sleeve for my elbow. Any suggestions on a brand?????? I have looked at several and am now more confused than ever...Also, any one have experience with any type of recovery shirt??

If you can't find an off the shelf brand, you can buy rolls of Tubigrip and cut it to the desired length-commonly used for lymphedema therapy, etc. -Your therapist should know what it is.. Also, there are some pretty awesome kinesio taping techniques that work really well for swelling in this area. Hope this helps.

McDavid but I think their sleeves have a built-in elbow pad. It's what you see many basketball players wear. If you don't want the pad you can maybe try just long sleeve compression shirts from Nike, Under Armour, etc.

Also... If you run out of other options, I use Defeet arm warmers for cycling and they also work great as elbow compression if you size down a bit..
