In brief: Maybe

Most people with heart disease can exercise safely, at some level, individualized according to your underlying heart disease.
However, this should be discussed with your doctor as there is high variability. A contusion is the medical term for a bruise. If all you have is a superficial bruise, this should not affect exercise. If you have a deeper injury, you may need to heal before returning.
