I'm sorry, but if the files are gone, there is no other backup within
zim. (I always recommend to use the version control plugin, to allow
rollbacks.)  I would double check trash though, if accidentally they
were deleted from within zim, they might have ended up there.

I really doubt this is due to the update to 0.59 itself. There is
nothing in the update that even touches pages.

Some background on the issue fixed in 0.59
* The issue fixed was already there for a long time, it was not new in 0.58
* The issue only dropped small pieces of newly inserted text in a
page, not whole pages
* The issue only affects paragraphs that are being modified, other
text in the same page is unaffected

That being said, you may have stumbled on another issue. Afraid it is
hard to tell without an exact description what the last thing is you
did with those pages.
