Are you a member of a union? If so, talk to your union.
Are you already represented by a workers compensation attorney? If so, talk to your lawyer right away. If not, go have a free consultation with an experienced workers comp attorney. You can find good ones on this site or at www.CAAA.org, the organization for attorneys who represent injured workers in California. You might also want to talk to an employment law attorney. You can fine them on this site as well, and at www.CELA.org.Ask a similar question

Even after 12 weeks, your employer has a duty under the Fair Employment & Housing Act to "reasonably accommodate" your medical condition. Accommodations may include additional protected time off or a modification of your job duties so your job is less physically exerting.
Consultation with a local employment attorney is strongly advised.
