Hit to the back of the head should not affect your nose
Thank you for the question. I do not see how a mild hit to the back of the head could affect your nose so I think you are ok. This is especially true if you did not have pain or bleeding from your nose.
All the best,

Back Of Head Trauma Effect On Rhinoplasty
A trauma to the back of your head should not cause an immediate damage to the results of your Rhinoplasty unless your nose has been hit.
Nonetheless, you should have your head checked t make sure no internal bleeding or concussion have taken place.
I encourage you to seek consultation with your surgeon for a physical examination.
Best of luck to you.
As physicians, we are very revealed that you did not suffer further nasal injury or a concussion because a blow to the posterior head could lead to a physical fall or other untoward sequela.
