Default oil pressure gauge pegging on 120

Driving my 2001 ssei and noticed my oil pressure gauge was all the way over to 120 I pulled over and restarted and the gauge went through it'* normal procedures then bounced all the way over to 120. Help guys is it my oil pressure sender, if so how hard of a change is that and will I hurt my car if I continue to drive it like it is until i get it fixed. No SES light either what gives?
thanks
