In brief: Up to 1 year

Most of the time tennis elbow is self limiting and the problem resolves itself in a few days or weeks.
In rare cases it can last for up to a year and at that point surgery would be recommended.

In brief: Recovery time varies

Lateral epicondylitis (aka "tennis elbow") is a common overuse injury to the elbow.
In order to treat the pain, i recommend you start with rice, follow with stretching/ strengthening (therapy), & consider couterforce bracing. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone or prp injections. Some people end up needing surgery... http://drmarkgalland.com/category/elbow.
