Otilathi disorder

Five months ago i have gone through FUT hair transplant surgery. After 3 days i started feeling imbalance while walking with vomit daily for one month. It seems that things around me is revolving when i walk. I am not able to understand my situation. Before surgery i didn't have any such issue. I was physically fit. But now, i am worried is this issue is permanent and will remain for ever. My ENT doctor has conducted some test and concluded otolith disorder but is not able to explain in detail. She did some manupltion of my head but at that time i did not feel any spinning issue. I m worried what kind of issue i am facing. Please guide me...!
