Jenny, I see that you are in Santa Clara - hello neighbor
At 8 months post op on a primary rhinoplasty (if that's what this was) then that doesn't sound normal. Right after surgery swelling can create some problems similar to this, but that is too far out. What is your doctor's response to this?
Would you mind posting a pic so we can get a better idea of what's going on? You can just post a picture of your nose (and crop out the rest of your face) to protect your privacy.
