He told me it was blood pooled in my heel! Apparently it's pretty normal! We tried wiping it off and it didn't come off. I guess with an ankle break the blood pools in your heel. After a few weeks in the boot it slowly started to go away. I spent a lot of time massaging my heel and around that area (not near my incision). My heel still hurts from time to time!
