Thoracic disc surgery

I'm new to the site. I had a pretty bad prolapsed thoracic disc last June which caused neuropathy and pain in my back, legs and feet. I had a thoracotomy and rib disc graft in dec last year and have been trying to recover slowly but surely. I have improved feeling in my feet and can now walk without crutches but still have a lot of pain in my lower back and numbness increases the more I walk. I can only walk one mile without being wiped out.
I am starting to swim now and trying to get more physio but because this is quite a rare my physio is reluctant to give me more exercises. I'm probably being impatient but wondered if there was anyone out there who has had a similar prolapse who can give me some post surgery advice.

Many thanks
