I was packing up my oboe after rehearsal today and I accidentally forgot my case was open when I stood up, so my oboe hit the floor pretty hard on the left side. I haven't had time to look at it until I played again, when I noticed my low B natural and B flat wouldn't come out. I took a look and saw that the rod connecting the bell and the body was really bent, so I, not wanting to go to the repair shop for the second time this year, unbent it. It still sounds airy and not as full as it was before despite my best efforts, and I noticed that the rod connected to the 1st octave key was also has a tiny dent in the middle, although I don't think that's affecting anything other than possibly E natural (it sometimes comes out playing both octaves). Is there anything else I can do to try and help this situation? I really don't want to go to the repair shop again. Thank you!
(I attached some pictures if you need to take a look)
