Broken Finger and still working

I didnt know exactly where to put this so im posting this here.

I broke my right pinky finger recently and had to get a splint put on my hand. Im right handed, and i paint and prep cars for a living. I asked the Doctor/Surgeon if i can work or not so i can receive short/long term disability benefits since i need basically both my hands especially my right hand to do my work. She told me i had to go back to work which i was suprised to hear, then i asked her if i was aloud to take off the splint as i worked cause none of my tools would fit into my hand with the splint on. She told me I had to find a way to work.

My boss's, coworkers, and friends are all surprised that im working with only one hand basically and now my left arm has been over worked and now is kinda fucked from that. Was the doctor wrong for telling me to go back to work? I dont really know wat to do cause i need to work to pay bills and ill only take the days off if im getting paid to but since the Doctor basically wont sign off on it im kind screwed there.....

A long time ago I had the experience of breaking/fracturing a finger too. Worker's comp only allowed me to be off work for a short time then I was back to work with the splint still on.. You will have to figure out a way to work around it and make sure your coworkers have it easy on you and let you do only the work you are capable of doing. Good luck and get better soon!

WCB will ask you to inform the employer and the health and safety committee should refer you to do less work intensive task until ur pinky heals.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

Fuck it, I'd work until my left shoulder was fucked and I can't work anymore then make a compo claim for that.

“The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth.” - Rocky Balboa

that was the plan but my stupid shoulder ended up healing itself. anyways im basically healed up now so it was just a month of discomfort. Oh and the accident happened outside of work.
