5 months post op; why my nose is still uneven and I still can't breath out my right nostril? (Photos)

My nose is still uneven and when I took my cast off there was a immediate recognition that one nostril was bigger than the other (right) but I'm having difficulty breathing out that nostril six months is around the corner and I was told to wait at least that time but I'm not seeing any progress.
