Why do I have half a pea shaped bump where my dorsal hump was removed that has shown up 3 months after surgery

Had a rhinoplasty 12/3/09 and have developed half of a pea shaped hard, bone like bump on part of my nose where my dosal hump was removed. My Doctor said it's probably bone dust-???? (I couldn't find any info on that.)Is it a part that wasn't shaved down correctly and I'm just seeing it 3 months later since most of my swelling is gone? He did give me a steroid shot a month ago with hopes it would go away, but I think it has grown larger, which he said it wouldn't...help!
