broken foot with lots of bruising

I am a working cowboy and recently had a horse fall on my foot. The doctor says that I broke my 5th metatarsel. The problem is that the break doesn't hurt. My toes and other metatarsels are black and killing me. I have been told to hang tight until the swelling goes down and then I will be reexamined. Until then I have quistions. why are the bases of my toes blue and sore? Does it have to do with the fracture or are they sprained? Can I do anything to help diminish the swelling? Any information is appreciated.
