How many consecutive hours can a call center schedule a person to work for?

Question Details: I had a stroke and I fell on my stroke side. It took 3 days for me to be able to go back to work. I was allowed to work my off days to make up for the days that I missed, 2 days. I acquired 3 points for those days because I did not get a doctor's excuse which would have allowed me to only lose 2 days. My schedule was redone and I was given 7 consecutive days to work. I was physically able to do 6 days but unable to do day 7. Now I'm going to be pointed and may lose my job. Along with being scheduled that way, I will not have enough to pay my rent. Since my right side is numb from the stroke, with the typing and using my cane throughout the day, I guess has caused it to stiffen on that side. I was unable to get myself together this morning to go in. Am I able to just request a 5 consecutive day work schedule so this does not happen again?
