Hello there,
You did the right thing by applying ice immediately. I don't think there is any need to worry. The pain and swelling will come down in a couple of days.You can apply ice pack intermittently 2-3 times today. From tomorrow onwards leave it alone. I think it should be fine . Normally it would take about 2-4 days for the pain and swelling to diasppear.Hope I have answered your question.
Have a nice day :)
