Hi and welcome to the Forum
I think your in between a rock and a hard place

Have you or can you check with;

python -c "import requests; print(requests.get('https://www.howsmyssl.com/a/check', verify=False).json()['tls_version'])"
You would also need to rebuild any of the existing python modules as well....

To check how many run;

zypper se -si python
