Thank you for your question. I would definitely recommend consulting with your surgeon so he can perform a physical exam. At 4 days post op, your nose is still quite vulnerable and you may have caused some damage internally that you may not be able to see. It is hard to know if there was any damage cause by the bump until your surgeon evaluates you in person.
Best of luck in your recovery!
