Generally speaking, post rhinoplasty patients have stable noses at six months. You should contact your surgeon but, otherwise stop the worry and go about your life.

Nasal stability and strength after surgery
Your nose should be completely healed by now. Generally things are very stable at six weeks and bone is fully calcified by 3 months. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
When is the nose is stable after Rhinoplasty
The nose is stable at about 6 months after a Rhinoplasty. By this time, the incisions are well healed, the majority of the swelling has subsided and the nasal bones if fractured are stable (these actually are stable at 1 month). At this point, I tell my Rhinoplasty patients that they can wear glasses, blow their noses and treat the nose like they did before the Rhinoplasty. Residual swelling can remain for several additional months however.

When is it safe to touch nose after rhinoplasty
If your nasal bones were fractured during your surgery your nose should be stable after about 6 weeks from surgery. Being 10 months from surgery you should be able to touch your nose without any problem at all. The dorsal graft that was placed should scar in over time. By this time point it should be stable. Certainly visiting with your surgeon to find out specifc recommendations would be advisable as your surgeon would best know what exactly was done during surgery.
