I find that I can do work with my cilice on. I usually wear it from just before 3pm (in any event I try to stop what I am doing every day at 3pm for a few moments) until I get home from work. I find it acts as an important limit on my getting self- or work-obsessed. I am lucky though to have an office to myself so I can be alone to pray or meditate.
Give it time, St Rose, and you'll get there in the end. In the meantime, the trouble this causes only makes the journey the more productive in the long run... Needless to say though, I trust that your leg heals soon!
