How do you tell if your elbow is broken?

I slipped on a slippery floor at work this past weekend and hit my elbow. I went to the hospital and ended up getting 5 stitches. they took x-rays but they said its not broken. However, its 5 days later and extremely swollen still and black and blue. It’s been at a 90 degree angle for the past few days, i’ve tried to move it such as extend and bend it more but i can’t and it is so painful. I also was comparing it to my other elbow and if i feel my hurt elbow, there is a piece that moves. What should i do? Could that piece just be fluid?

    I would go see a new doctor he/she will give you a new X-RAY!!
