I had a rhinoplasty on January 4th. It's 9 months since my surgery but I can barely breathe through my nose.

There are many different reasons for blockage of the nose including nasal valve narrowing, allergies, turbinate hypertrophy, deviation of the septum etc. It is a long list and what you need is a good evaluation by an Otolaryngologist to get the correct diagnosis before any treatment can be recommended.
I recommend you to go your surgeon. You may need another surgery for improvement of airway.

Obtaining your previous operative note and consulting with a rhinoplasty specialist would be helpful. Good luck!

It should be a good idea to find out the problem. Visit your Doctor and let exam your nose from inside. Sometimes the reason could be some Rhynitis, some scaring from surgery.
