Doctor insights on: Bone spur in elbow treatment

I have fluid on my elbow. It has been there a couple months. I had rotator cuff and bone spur surgery on same arm one year ago. Are these related?
Prob. Not: Rotator cuff repair/decompression surgery from a year ago would not cause 'fluid on the elbow'.Sounds like you have the common olecranon bursitis caused by bumping the back of your elbow, resting it on table tops, etc. Or previous elbow surgery.

I have a bone spur in my heal, medication nor home treatment does not work. Would surgery be the best solution?
Plantar Fasciitis: "Bone Spurs" or "Heel Spurs" are old ways of expressing one of the most common problems I see in practice: Plantar Fasciitis. The pain does not come from a spur, but actually comes from tension and inflammation across this ligament. I DO NOT recommend surgery for this problem. I am able to get rid of the problem 99% of the time in my patients conservatively. See a Podiatrist. ...Read more
