The tendonitis is somewhat manageable. [Pause to knock on wood.] I can fence as long as I'm wearing my sleeve cuff without any sensations of pain during or afterwards, although I do ice it ASAP to be safe. I do notice the symptoms (1) when I wake every morning; (2) when I do my arm exercises; and (3) when I do little things like zipping up my coat.
