Got hit HARD on my nose 10 months after Rhinoplasty, will this affect my results?

Was finally starting to see a nice swoop which Id always wanted until last night I accidentally ran into the edge of a door "nose first". Hurt pretty bad to the point that I got a headache and was throbbing all night. Now it's swollen & I no longer have that nice swoop instead I have a small bump. Concerned it ruined. At last follow up surgeon told me I would take about a yr & a half to fully heal, could the impact have caused any damage? I took arnica right away & iced it for a little. Thx

I would recommend an exam by your surgeon to assess your nose after a trauma like that.
