Thanks for sending your query to us.
Giddiness is more likely to occur with inner ear infection.
Cataract surgery does not lead to giddiness,unless there are certain other complication.
3 weeks is too much of time for complications to occur.Any problem if it is to occur will occur in the initial stage and not 3 weeks later.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
