Difficult to sAy

External splints have little or no relation to your septum

you should communicate with your plastic surgeon and voice your concerns

Splint tight on one side

Without an exam it is impossible for me to say, but you shoudl really ask and see your surgeon to be properly advised.  Good luck.
