How long can I remain LWOP as a veteran that is hospitalized for a service-connected issue?

Under EO 5396 I am entitled to LWOP. That is a given. Under FMLA, my position must be retained for 12 weeks. If I am wrong under either of these statements, please let me know as these are the presumptions I am operating under.
That being said:
How long can my Agency carry me as LWOP before termination process can begin?

There should be agency policy on this question. Agencies determine how long to retain employees based on a number of considerations such as position held, reason for requesting LWOP, etc. Here is a document on the effect of LWOP. https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/leave-administration/fact-sheets/effect-of-extended-leave-without-pay-lwop-or-other-nonpay-status-on-federal-benefits-and-programs/
