slammed my xpro2 and 14mm in the mud

sorry no photo of the incident, but was in a trail environment did not realize i was approaching a slick low area, fell backwards involontarily used my right arm to break my fall, my xpro2/14mm with hood was slung into the ground with my right arm, , (camera slung crossways across chest), i looked in horror as a forward quarter of the lens i had to pull from the soft muck, cleaned the thick stuff immediatly with spare t-shirt,

Got home used, rubbing alcohol and toothbrush to get out of focus ring, Everything seems tbe working fine, but slight grit i have noticed while tuning focusing ring, used a small vacuum at the clutch focusing ring, and grit almost unnoticeable,

should i send in for general cleaning service to fuji, or just deal with it, ?since i notice no issues. had to buy a new lens hood from b and h, old one cracked, filter intack no-damage.
