Its take time in correction with physical exercises and brace. Surgry is good option. But I meed urs x ray of knee in standing position.
Consult a physiotherapist to check with your range of motion of elbow. So that you can check with the elbow angle for better clarification, to confirm we can go for an xray. Physical exercise needs to be done for better improvement to the weak muscles of the elbow. Sand bag exercises can be tried to improve the angle.
