If I recall correctly, Harry ( @hvills ) does water exercises, so hopefully he can weigh in on this.
I swim at least 5 days a week and have done so since 4 months post-op. It has done wonders for my recovery and I really enjoy it. I don't really have any specific exercises in the water other than swimming and I follow this by 10 laps of water walking since the pool I use is a continuous 1.2m deep pool. If you are not a strong swimmer just try swimming a lap followed by a walking lap and repeat as your experience and strength allows. You can also add a small strap on floaty to your back to make the swimming less strenuous if needed. Just don't let the little kids make fun of you...
