Now that you've waited so long, the doctor will have to re-break your nose to set it. Just go get in a fight and have the paramedic re-set it for you. it'd probably be cheaper.
Another vote for going to the doc. Someone broke my nose for me back when I was in junior high and I didn't have it set, now its all fucked up. Its bent over to my left just enough so that if I start breathing hard through my nose, the left nostril completely collapses. One of my co-workers had his broken twice pitching college baseball, didn't have it set properly either time, and now is going to have to go under the knife becausse he can't breath out of his nose for ****.
It's allergy season. This means i won't be able to breathe out of my right nostril until about september or so.

Ohhhh hahahahaha, I completely forgot about the gauze. Oh man, the gauze. I wish I had a post-op picture. My nose was red and round, the size of a small apple (kinda like in the old cartoons.) Seriously, remember that scene in "Total Recall" where Ah'nold is pulling the transmitter out of his nose?

Seriously, go to a doctor. And for those of you who had their nose broken years ago, and suffer during allergy season, do yourself a favor and get under the knife. It's fucking worth it, a million times over.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
I'm going in two weeks. 15 years of annual sinus infections is enough! Doc says my septum almost completely blocks my left sinus. To add insult to injury, every infection thickens the tissue and narrows the sinuses. I can't wait to breathe through my nose again.

Go to the doctor. Something else to consider is that I believe deviated septums are a risk factor for strokes, especially seriously deviated ones.
Really? maybe I should get mine checked out.
