Nasal congestion?: No, first find out what is causing nasal congestion it could be sign of infection, allergies and foreign body in the nose, adenoids and many other causes.
Allergies: Ongoing nasal congestion is usually caused by allergies. There are other things that can cause it. I would recommend seeing a doctor and letting him/her look in your nose to see how things look and get a more extensive history. Mother can then help you make a good plan of treatment.
Suction: If the nose is congested and full of mucous the best way to clear the nasal passages of a toddler who cannot blow the nose is to use a suction bulb. Spraying the nostrils with an OTC nasal saline and then using the suction bulb works best. There will be a protest, but "just suck it up"!See 1 more doctor answer
Post operative nose: The answer depends how long it's been since your surgery. If its the first week then oral steroids may help. Sudafed can also be effective. If its been more like a month then nasal steroid sprays like Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase could help. If its been longer, it's possible your surgery was ineffective. Wait at least 9 months and consider a revision if the situation has not improved. Best of luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Treat your allergy: The dose of thyroid medication you are on does not limit medications for your nose. Start with irrigating your nose with saline. If your nose is acutely congested, you can use a nasal decongestant such as oxymetazloline (Afrin) for 3-4 days. You need to use a nasal steroid for the long haul. OTC Nasacort (triamcinolone) is available, all others are by prescription. Again, no nasal decongestant beyond 4-5 days.See 1 more doctor answer
Ears not nose: The problem you are more likely to have is with your ears. They won't be able to 'pop' to react to the pressure changes if the nose is very congested. Consult with your doctor or an ENT to see if using a decongestant might help you with the flight. Or, postpone the flight so that you aren't a risk to both yourself and others.See 1 more doctor answer

The environment plays a role, like whether you have pets, feather pillows, carpets, you smoke or around smokers, etc. Saline nasal washes used often would help for now till you see an ENT or an allergistSee 1 more doctor answer
