I had an open rhinoplasty on November 5, 2008. I had a deviated septum.

I overall like the result, except for a bump that has appeared on one side of the nose after two months. My doctor assured me after 5 weeks, I could do whatever I wanted without any effects to my nose. However, this bump appeared after a few days of very vigorous physical activity.

Can vigorous physical exercise lead to abnormal scar tissue formation or swelling? After 8 months, can I now do vigorous physical activity without worrying about abnormal scar tissue formation or swelling?
