Hit on Nose 3 Weeks Post Septoplasty?

I had septrhinoplasty 3 week ago. yesterday a 5 year old jail swung her arms and it my nose (not full force). I had no bleeding, tears, or pain. My nose still looks straight. However I felt numbing sensation for a minute or two after the impact. Should I be worried?

I would suggest making an appointment with your surgeon as soon as possible for an evaluation. With that said, I would not stress that any permanent damage has occurred by your current description of events. No one will know better then your surgeon! Better safe then sorry and make an appointment for evaluation. Best regards!
