Is there a surgery to recover balance after tbi and it has been at least 3 years since the injury?

In brief: Depends on injury

The nature. Location, and severity of the tbi may give some clues as to the area of injury.
For example, a common site of injury is to the skull base in the region of the temporal bone. This may lead to vestibular problems and subsequent balance issues. A neuro-otologist can help with this. Post-traumatic hydrocephalus/normal pressure hydrocephalus can lead to balance issues. Consult neurosurgery.

In brief: Possibly

You should discuss these findings with your doctor. You could reopen the cervix to drain the fluid, but, given the paucity of symptoms, that may not be necessary.
