My truck Broke

Hey, I got an 93 ford with a 7.3 in it. I just had my oil changed at leyroys gas station and I think they put like 10 quarts in the tank. I check my oil and the level good but the oil light is still on? What the deal...Is my light faulty? Last time I was at leyroys for an oil change i dint have this problem. Leyroy usually treats me and my truck good.

I dont live near no ford delearship. I would hav to drive to the next state for that, but i am not drivin my truk till this problem is fixed. I already broke down on the side of the road last week and had to wait for about 10 hours till my son picked me up. And I have 8 sons, but none of them wanted to get me. I think they just dont want to be in my truck, either that or I smell real bad. but i said i got the sensors brand new about 5 months ago so the senseris good and the oil is in there so why the light on?

I know its alot of work but i would change the oil again just to see if maybe the senor got thrown off. if not just drive it a while and check and drive and check i just know sometimes as you bring the dip stick up you can get extra oil on the dip stick
