I had an Open rhinoplasty to reduce the size of my bridge and fix my droopy tip. I'm now 6 months post op and this morning whilst playing football I injured my nose. As I turned another players arm came straight across and hit me in the middle of my nose. There was some pain mainly on the bridge, and some bleeding which stopped after 5 mins. This was 2 hours ago, I can now feel a small bump on the bridge and visually I can see the tiny bump. It's still slightly sore. What do I do? Help?

I think you should see your doctor. An evaluation is important to make sure there is not a hematoma inside the nose. As for the small bump, this is likely swelling on the bridge. Cold compresses will help.
