Thank you so much for your reply. I gave her a call today and she said that I can massage it (with my thumb and index finger in a circular motion) to reduce the swelling. I asked her if I risk moving the cartilage and she said that it's been over a week and by now the nose has completely healed so it's ok.
I am really really worried of the the development of solid scar tissue. I have heard horror stories about cortisone shots and how the the nose looks stuffed up as a result of the tissue inside. I really hope it doesn't happen to me.

Does it feel better when you massage your nose?
You might need to wait it out, as was the case in the first surgery. Definitely monitor your progress and keep your surgeon updated. If anything seems amiss notify your surgeon at once.
Maybe you can post some pics if it is a visible problem. This might help forum members evaluate your issue in an ameliorated fashion. Remember a picture is worth 1,000 words!
