Elliptical or oblong?

 

Use the Loft command with the Path option. It should work.

I would loft between a couple of extrusion using centerline guide curve, union and shell.

Down and dirty example. Linework at upper left end and finished elbow at lower right. Probably could have eliminated a couple of steps had I used the Region command.
