I am sorry that you are going through this. What was the labyrinthectomy surgery for?

Unfortunately, the surgery essentially destroys the balance center on one side of your head. The other side will eventually compensate, but sometimes it can take some time. The vertigo and imbalance can be helped with balance therapy which it sounds like you have already done. It is important to be consistent with this therapy to get significant relief.

In addition, in the short term, there may be medications that can help you. Meclizine (antivert) can help when the symptoms are severe. In addition, other medications like promethazine and small doses of valium can help as you are recovering. Unfortunately, this recovery requires a lot of patience. I hope that was helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
