You need to have an opinion regarding the polyp , as although some are not removed, it is generally not recommended to ignore a polyp that is only on the one side.
The position of the body does have an effect on the nasal cavity, as it as a fact that the one nostril that is superior (on the "top"), will be open. Your nose is affected by the normal nasal cycle, and this means that the nostrils are opened and closed on either side every six hours (approximately). Certain other factors play a role, such as temerature changes and exercise and position, so your symptoms could be considered within normal limits. If you still feel troubled, see your ENT again, or ask for a second opinion.
