I'm a big Pilates fan. Just be careful not to over do it. The moves can look simple and kill later. Also just about any move can me modified by resting your head on the ground or bending the knees. Then you can work your way up to straight legs and torso lifted. Also when lifting your head try to relax your shoulders. You can make your neck hurt if you push your shoulders up to your ears while doing the moves.
Also - my gym is run by a hospital and have "Enlighten" classes specifically for injured individuals. They include things like Auqacize and Ti Chi. I know they also offer discounts with a doctors note and some insurance companies will cover the cost.
Good Luck and best wishes! I'm recovering from knee surgery myself and am amazed both by how long it's continued to bother me (I thought the surgery was supposed to fix the pain! lol) and by how much exercise is helping to build strength in it again.
