Moving septum? Blocks breathing.

History: I used to have several allergies/extreme septum deviation. I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction of the right nostril. Right nostril is ***significantly*** larger than left, creating pressure difference between left/right sides.

My septum is moving when I am breathing. When the left turbinates swell up (as they do every 19 minutes), + septum moves = my left nostril gets blocked, and I can feel the septum pushing against the walls of my nose...

I am scheduled for the turbinate reduction of that nostril in hopes of fixing the problem..

Any feedback on my situation? Advice? Recommendations?
