Breathing: It would be important to see a board certified ENT or plastic surgeon. It may be in relation to previous rhinoplasty or not have anything to do with your previous surgery.

Difficult problem: You need to now why you had the surgery on your nose. Breathing problems can have several causes. Sometimes they are anatomical, such as with a deviated septum, or they may be of medical origin such as with allergy. You best option would be to see ENT or plastic surgeon for evaluation.
