Exclamation Tendonitis in Hind leg?

I have a 13 yo QH who, for about 7 weeks has had some serious problems with his left hind leg. In the beginning, his whole fetlock and outside of his cannon bone was hard and swollen. He had a little limp but not too bad. I hosed it, and wrapped it in poultice, and had him on stall rest for about 2 weeks, but nothing seemed to change. We called out the vet, and she diagnosed him with celluitis. He had to get an I.V. of penicillin and a shot of genesin for 7 days. Nothing worked, and he could hardly walk. The vet took x-rays and ruled out a closed joint infection, and nothing we tried seemed to work. I recently took him to a different vet, and she said he has tendinitis. As of right now, he gets bute, poultice and hosed off everyday, but his fetlock is still horribly swollen. We do not have the money to take him to the vet clinic she recommended, and I was wondering if anyone had some advise or tips they could share, thanks!!
