Bumped my nose 6 weeks after rhinoplasty?

I had rhinoplasty 6 weeks ago and today was the first time i played soccer again. And immediately i got hit on my nose. Some guy just didnt see me and I bumped my nose into his shoulder. I heard a cracking sound but im not sure it cam from my nose. My nose didnt bleed but the left side of my nose hurts and its swollen so my nose looks crooked... have i done permanent damage to my nasal bone will the swelling go down again?
