elbow bursitis

I bumped the wall of the swimming pool repeatedly with my elbow. After a long time my arm became black & blue. I swam again, this time taking care not to bump the wall but after the color went away I had a goose egg lump
on the outside of my elbow - evidently a swollen bursa. I have kep it bandaged & tried to avoid using it much but swelling & tenderness are still there. My question is whether it's OK to do a little easy swimming. I haven't
seen a doctor yet but am trying to use the RICE treatment. Anyone else
have this experience?
