"Hit harder" in the sense that an elbow injury can cause much longer DL time and have much more significant career ramifications.  See the article Kevrock posted above about second-round TJ surgery.

Oh, if you get hit again, yes.  But I bet someone who's had TJ already is a LOWER risk for additional elbow problems than a pitcher who's never had it.  Mindfact for sure, but it seems this tends to strengthen the joint against future issues.
