Black and blues are also normal if it feels like there is fluid below the black and blue area, it may be a hematoma, a small collection of blood. If it is just a bruise, it will go away in a couple of weeks. Bruising usually migrates inferiorly, turns yellow, and then resolves.
Consult your surgeon, trust his advice, and be patient.
