I hit my nose seven months post rhinoplasty. Did I do any permanent damage? What action should I be taking?

Revision, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns about your Rhinoplasty with us.
Congratulations for having patience and wait more than six months PO, which is the recommended time allowed to make judgments of value and be precise and accurate.
After having analyzed all the info and photos provided to us, i recommend to perform a Secondary Rhinoplasty (not a tip revision) this means (basically) treat the nasal bones and the nasal cartilages.
Therefore i would perform a narrowing of the nasal base (nose osteotomy) and alar and triangular cartilage shaping.

There isn't really anything you can do than what you are doing. If the swelling doesn't subside on its own then you'll need to schedule an appointment to see your surgeon and have your nose assessed.
