It is very unusual to have severe pain or discomfort seven months after septoplasty.  Have your surgeon look for oxposed bone or cartilage.  YOu may want to get a second opinion.

Recovery after septoplasty

What you are describing is certainly not typical 7 months after septoplasty.  I recommend following up with your surgeon so that she/he may evaluate you in person.
