LCWRA back payment

Hey, i'd be happy if someone could help! 

I have been giving fit notes continously since Sept 2022. I have had WCA Dec 2023 and have been awarded LCWRA in Jan 2024. Now this is the confusin as i've been given fit notes for the last year i'm not sure if I should be getting back payment. I have been told that if I had a day or two day gap the system restarts everything. Now the last gap I had was in Jan 2022 which was 2 days a weekend. I never thought of my GP back dating the two days. Now this is what I want to find out since Jan 2022 my fit notes have had no gaps but does putting the date for the next day counting as a gap. The day my fit note ends I always contact my GP and they tell me that its still valid for that day so come tomorrow and the fit note would start from the next day. For example if my fit notes last day was 23, I get another fit note for the 24th and upload that date to UC as the 23 is counted as a valid day if that makes sense? does that mean I should still get a back payment? 
Thank you in advance!!
