Issues with Nose and Breathing Years After Septoplasty

Can working out in the gym, particularly doing kick ups with the ball affect the nose after septoplasty? I think my cartilage shifted and got deviated after I was doing that. It is already almost 2 yrs since surgery. When does a nose fully heal ? What can cause it to shift back ? I had a same problem 5 months after surgery, now it happened again. My nose is very stuffy, it feels like something has shifted.
