Yes, you can swap the side it`s blown on and be okay. However, have the head checked for cracks and have it checked for straightness, if the deck of the head is warped it`ll blow the gasket again unless it`s milled flat. Intake gaskets can also cause issues and get coolant in the oil, you may want to make sure the intake gaskets are okay as I would hate for you to have to yank a head and you only needed intake gaskets.
