This is not a minor blow.
I would recommend that you are assessed for your trauma. Since this is not an emergency, I recommend that you have your regular doctor refer you to a facial plastic surgeon for an assessment. This specialist will be able to provide you guidance regarding what to expect. It is important to rule out a fracture caused by your trauma that is responsible for the loss of sensation.
