I suggest that given the health issues that you have that you consult with a labor attorney about what your legal options are and/or your local department of labor. Under the laws of all states in this country, the only way you can be legally terminated from work is if your employer simply is in a financial bind. Your employer legally has to have a position for you when you come back from disability leave unless the company is in dire financial straights.
