I don't understand his "strictness" about sick leave - if he initially though 2 weeks was reasonable, OK, he may be disappointed that you ignored his advice on this and took only one week - but now you'd be agreeing he was right, and only returning to what he originally suggested, not asking for extra ? But anyhow, if you feel that extra time off will create more problems for you, I suppose you can continue at work.
