I just had tennis elbow surgery on my left arm. I am right handed?

The doctor seems to think that 3 weeks healing time is enough. It took me 12 weeks for my right arm to heal from the same surgery. How can I get the doctor to keep me out of work long enough for my other arm to heal? I think I will need a full 12 weeks just like the other one. I go to see him tomorrow. Any suggestions???

    What do you do for work???
    If using your left arm is not a big part of your job, maybe you should be back at work.
    The doctor should know, if it is necessary to not work with the arm, or if it is completely healed, Sounds to me that you just want more paid time off.
