Elbow to the nose
It sounds unlikely that you broke your nose. It is possible you are simply experiencing swelling from the trauma. This should resolve on its own. However, if you do not notice improvement with time, I recommend you contact your surgeon.
Hit to nose post Septorhinoplasty
My guess is that you are aware of your nose because it is a bit swollen and because you are worried. Give yourself a few days to recover. It the swelling doesn't subside then yes, see your surgeon. But my guess is that all will be fine.
