Picked my nose a lot after surgery, now a bump has formed! Have I ruined my results? (photos)

I had surgery a week ago, and I have had a hard time keeping my fingers out of my nose. I picked it until it bled minimally a couple of times. Now a bump has formed inside the left nostril (right side of the picture). What could this be?? Have I ruined my results?

   I think that the best advice is to return to your surgeon for an examination.
