Recent surgery and my job

I had an SCS implanted 2 days ago. When I made the decision to have this done, my drs. nurse told me I'd have to take a few days off from my job. I made plans with my employer to have someone cover my shift for 3 full days with the intention of returning to work on Friday (tomorrow). After surgery, my dr. came in with a sheet that said I had to be off 10 days and had heavy restrictions for 6 weeks. Today I received a call from my manager saying that because all of my restrictions are part of my job, I can't come back to work for 6 weeks. I don't know what to do! I can't survive for that length of time without a paycheck. Does anyone know of any options out there that might help me? I'd appreciate any words of wisdom you might have.

Thank you,
