Can you still boot into the Android operating system itself? If you can, then you can download a terminal emulator from Google Play and use it to boot into recovery through its command line. Here's what you would need to type in, only type what is in bold:

su
(This requests superuser/root permissions for the app. When you get this, wait for a message to come up asking if you want to give it root permissions and then grant the app permissions.)
reboot recovery
This will make the phone turn off, and it will boot into recovery. If it doesn't boot into recovery, then the recovery itself is probably broken.

I'll try to get the button combo for recovery ASAP, just in case the terminal emulator method does not work.

EDIT: Here is how to boot into recovery with the button combinations:

1) turn off the phone, take off the cover, and remove the battery.
2) put the battery back in
3) hold down the volume down key. CONTINUE TO HOLD IT DOWN AS YOU THEN HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON TO TURN THE PHONE ON AGAIN.

this method is to get into stock recovery, but you can try it to get into CWM. Post back what happens when you try these methods.
