any help?

I was having arm/elbow pain for over 6 months and now it has become unbearable. I had a MRI on my elbow/arm and The results were. A partial high grade tear of the extenes tendon. I see an ortho doctor in a few weeks. But I have a family to worry about and I need to know is this something I am going to need a surgery for? How likely is that? I have been off work 2weeks already and I just am having anexity issues over this. I do a very repadative job almost always 60 hrs a week.
