Hi dear. I am your physician, having a vast years long experience in the field of General Surgery, psychiatry, Radiotherapy, OB/GYN, Internal Medicine, Ottorhinolaryngology and Nutrition and weight loss, and Pain Management. I have carefully gone through your case and in my expert opinion you should not worry much as its always time taking recovery when it comes to nerve injuries.
Consult some Physical Therapist is my suggestion to you. He will give you perfect schedule to recover and tone it up back to normal in a specified time. Stick to his advice.
You need not consider swimming right away. It will hurt you and delay the healing process. Stay aside, give it a rest and go slow.
I hope you get better soon
