Unexplained bruising 1 week after surgery

I had a Morton's Neuroma removed a week ago. Everything went very well and I have had very little discomfort. Now a week later I have notice significant bruising on my second toe. It is so purple I thought some how marker from marking my foot for surgery got on the toe. I do take classes at a university, so I do use my crutches to get me around campus. I've been there all day four days this week. As a result, my foot has not been elevated for any great length of time except when I return home in the evening and all night in bed. I feel like I have been lucky to be so mobile after surgery, but has my determination to 'keep going' caused harm? Thank you in advance for any thoughts.
