Legal Question in Workers Comp in California

I was Out on wc for 13 months had surgery on both wrist. I went back to work from feb21 to apr12,2013. I'm off work again becouse both wrist flared up and swollen bad. My first case is still open and I see the dr that did my surgeries on tues apr23. Should I open a new case or stick to the one that's still open? Will they continue to pay me the same amount. Not sure what to expect? Are they going to give me another drug testing?
