Fish can't float/stay straight anymore

Over a month ago I treated a female dwarf gourami for a head injury she sustained. Antibiotics and an isolation box until it started to heal. She began perking up, swimming and eating again, so I let her out. She was a bit wonky, but seemed fine. She never stopped being wonky, and it actually deteriorated, to the point now where she won't float anymore, and just allows herself to sink until she wants to move.

She still starts swimming for food, so I'm confused.

The injury was right by one of her eyes, and it has seemed "off" since then, not quite pointing in the right direction.
