Personally, I'd make sure I could back that nut off. You may need to chase the threads first.
Otherwise, the axle itself is likely fine for use. I doubt the bearings would have felt any significant side-load impact. The forks, on the other hand, may no longer be true, depending on how badly the axle dug in. As you say it was low-speed, they're probably fine.
Glad to hear you're okay!
