Basal joint surgery

I had basal joint surgery on december12th...have been off work since. My job requires a lot of hand usage and it was my right hand. My Dr. Was very open and honest about what to expect but truthfully I thought it would be way further along by now. My physical therapist said to give it a year before full effects would be felt. I am thinking about going back to work but wondering if full usage of my hand will hinder the healing or undo some of the progress I have made....any advise?
