Off for 2 months and no wage benefits
if the doctor you saw on 7/22 confirms that you needed to be off work because of the injury on May 23, then you will receive disability payments for your time off.
if the doctor you saw on 7/22 says you were not disabled or your current condition is not because of the may 23 work injury, you will NOT be paid disability for the time off.

taking time off work because you were in pain is one thing; there is leave time, vacation, sick or sometimes unpaid leave all provided by the employer
getting disability payments for the time off is another. that requires medical approval by a comp doctor and is covered by the insurance carrier.
the two are not the same.

you took more then a week off without a doctor's approval. comp won't pay without medical evidence to support the time off.
I'm not sure what is confusing you, so I can't make it much clearer.
