How fast would an elbow injury heal?

I was getting off the bus today and it was raining very bad. The steps are plastic and were wet, as I was stepping down, I slipped and fell on my elbow. My elbow immediately started to bleed uncontrollably. My whole right arm looked like a scene from "Saw" by the time I got home. I washed it up, applied some Neosporin, and put a band-aid on it. I really wanted to go to the swimming pool since it first opened. But I can’t, I know delicate things like this take time, but I just need a crude timeframe of when it might heal. Thanks in advance for all your help… By the way, it looks like a chunk of skin was torn off when I looked at it. My friend described it as, "a hole in my elbow…"
I can still use it. I can’t bend it too much before it starts to hurt (I think that’s because of the band-aid). I’ll take it off and see how my arm does. I’m sure it’s not broken, or else I’d be in excruciating pain.

    Hey buddy.
    You might try to find an arm sling for a few weeks. A few weeks should be fine.
    Take the sling off after that, and see what it looks like.
    Keep my updated!
