Knee injury

My left lateral knee area has been tender for several months and I thought it was ITB.
I had a MRI on the area and the doctor told me I had a bruised bone.
How long does that generally take to heal?
I no longer do any activities that are weight bearing, but still swim.

    Healing generally can take 6-8 weeks. In the meantime continue to swim if it doesn’t cause increased pain. Give it time to heal and use ice for pain. Good luck, Mya PT
