Significant Pressure on One Side of Nose?

I had open septorhinoplasty 2 months ago, till now whenever I tilt my head to the right, I can feel a very heavy pressure sensation from the left side of the nose. What is this? It's been like that since the surgery and pretty annoys me.

Very hard to say what may be causing the pressure from this description.  Is your breathing overall improved after the septoplasty?  An endoscopic exam in the office can determine what is happening when you tilt your head.
