In brief: Likely

High grade means complete or nearly complete tear, for which surgery is usually recommended if the reading is in fact accurate.
Approximately 6-8 week recovery time.

Is typical for an injury in that part of your elbow along with physical therapy and relative rest.
If you are a thrower, gymnast or actively put a great deal of repetitive stress on your elbow surgery might be recommended after conservative treatment. Full thickness tears in the above populations often need surgery
