So I hit my nose on the tip very hard with the shower head two weeks post surgery. Will this affect the final outcome? There was some pain when it happened as well.

In brief: It's possible

Hi Christel! From your question, I'm assuming you just had a rhinoplasty? Depending on what was done, trauma immediately after surgery may affect the final outcome.
Since you are two weeks out, it is more likely that instead of shifting anything (such as a graft), prolonged swelling or epistaxis may occur. I'm sure your surgeon will be more than happy to see you and answer specific questions.
