Thank you for your response and additional information.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, if you have a permanent disability that impairs a major life function, which you do, then the employer must give you a reasonable accommodation if they have one available. Thus, you need to send them a letter with a request for reasonable accommodation under the ADA
and attach all of your medical information from your doctor to prove your disability and what accommodation would be required. Then if they deny you an accommodation, your next step is filing a complaint with the state commission on human/civil rights or the EEOC
and they will investigate to issue a right to sue letter to allow you to go to court.
Also, if you go out for surgery, you are entitled to 12 weeks of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act while you are out and if they fire you prior knowing you will be going on such leave, this is retaliation
under the FMLA
which is a claim you can also file with the Department of Labor
This is how to proceed with your situation, since you have multiple potential violations.
