In brief: Probably not

Your employer will probably not allow you to work if the occupational health doctor says no because they will not want to risk you getting worse from your initial work injury.
Let the doctor be the expert in this case.

In brief: Depends on employer

The occupational health doctor makes a recommendation to the employer. It is the boss's decision whether to let you work, but he risks liability if he does not take that doctor's recommendation.
