In brief: Pelvis
Keep working hard with physical therapy! also ask your therapist for good exercises to be doing on your own, and remain dedicated and determined.
If you have access to a swimming pool water-based exercise is excellent, but you will need assistance with this.

In brief: Push, don't overdo
I would continue to practice the exercises you've learned from pt that you can do independently.
It is always work to exercise and strengthen our bodies, so it is ok to push yourself somewhat. However, i also encourage you not to overdo it. I understand this is vague, but you have to listen to your body so as not to re-injure or cause another problem. I think more frequent/less strenuous is best.
