I expect that no one has answered because of the unusual nature of your question.  Very doubtful that anyone would have experience to draw from, so we are left with opinions only.  My opinion is that it should be fine, based on your description.  So I would just give it some time for swelling/inflammation to resolve.  If that doesn't happen as would be expected, then consult a doctor.
