Tendon Injury in wrist.

Patient : Hi there looking for a little advice sense I am getting a couple mixed answers. Basically October 1st I was helping a friend move several heavy pieces of furniture up four flights of stairs and had my hand bent back. It hurt but I did not notice any change. I went to work next day and started too feel increasing shooting pain that got crippling by end of the week and my thumb feeling tingling and losing some feeling in it as well as massive bruiseing. So I went to the er and had it put in a splint and was given Naproxen 500MG for the pain and swelling and was advised to have some physiotherapy. So I did for two weeks got the range of motion back but my thumb still feels numb and the swelling has not gone down at all despite icing and the naproxen. Being a month sense the initial injury and returning to work on light duty's that is somewhat difficult. I am being asked when I can return to regular duty's. I am a little stumped as how to proceed and concerned of making it worse or not addressing the swelling and lose of feeling in thumb to give them a answer. Thanks in advance for any advice available.
