Random pressure feeling creeping on one side of nose.

I am ome day post open rhinoplasty/septoplasty. I havent had any pain and the next day I felt like my nose was twisting slowly for about two minutes non stop. Are these bones moving or swelling?

As you recover from any surgery, unusual sensations and unexpected feeling are common. Most likely you have swelling and some sensory return. If the splint is in place and the nose looks the same, you are not likely to have moved anything. If unsure, contact your surgeon to be checked.
