I've previously had really bad tendonitis in both elbows.  Kinda comes with the grip territory.  Rest and rehab.  Unless you have destroyed everything in there, you should be fine with enough time.  Even if they had to surgically repair it, you should be fine if you stick to a solid recovery plan.  It's not like we are lifting powerlifting type weights for the majority of what we do here.

I’ve found that doing extension finger bands for every flexion exercise I do keeps the tendonitis at bay... especially with grippers! In between each gripper set i do heavy rubber band finger extensions. Keeps the elbows very happy

I do a lot of extensor bands, generally it keeps elbow problems away.

But what I have found is with consistent grip training, I am much more prone to repetitive motion injuries. My last elbow problem that lasted 3 months? Due to opening all doors with my fingertips because I thought it would be a good idea.

Train when you train but be careful of everything in between, especially other sports or activities. Make sure you are recovering fully, that's at least half the battle.

Make sure to release your tension. My Chiro doc taught me and is helping tremendously. The forearms and the biceps and so on is surely very tight. Release it by letting your wife stand on it (or massage it hardly with oil).

I had tennis elbow in my right arm and currently have it in my left arm. The below information, products and techniques I found very useful (through trial and error) in my recovery. They may be of use to you.

 

KT Tape:

The first time I had tennis elbow the surrounding forearm muscles were in protection mode and my arm was in constant pain throughout the day and I couldn’t sleep very well, repeatedly waking up. As soon as I put on KT tape my muscles relaxed and I was both amazed and a very happy man. Even after my arm was well on the road to recovery I used the tape on a regular basis.

I’ve used the tape much less on my current injury but I did use it regularly for a period of time.

How to self tape:

Exercising the tennis elbow muscles. When I first had Tennis Elbow I had to use the smallest of the theraband flexbars and worked my way up to the biggest.

By far the best rollers I’ve found.

Arm Aid. This has helped me tremendously in getting rid of old scar tissue and recuperation. I’ve used the different rollers at different times. I’d check out the descriptions of the different types of rollers you can buy for it to find the one(s) that will work best for your situation.

I've had it a few times over the years. The last time I had it I could not shake it for at least 9 months. Tried everything that had ever worked for me previously and many new ideas. Eventually I came across this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2971639/ . I ordered a therabar and started doing what was recommended in the study notes. It started clearing up for me and I was mostly pain free in a couple weeks. shortly after that the tennis elbow pain was gone even with training, etc. I still keep the Therabar in by workout bag and use it after workouts as prehab now whenever I train (though not training as much lately) and have not had a flareup since I started using it.

I would highly recommend this method to anyone.

I bought something simar to this from a local sporting goods store that helped alot.  I was getting numbness and tingling in my pinky/ring finger especially while I slept.  Three things that helped were this self masssge tool. Extensor work, and ulnar/median nerve "flossing " movements I got off youtube
