Did you tell them you were taking off? Did you call in and explain? You can't just not show up and expect to keep your job. If you called in and expalined in advance, and if you have a note from your doctor, then you are correct - they should not have fired you.

I don't know which state you are in, but in an at-will employment state, you can be terminated for any time for any reason or for no reason at all. Having said that, there are certain circumstances that would violate employment law. If you were fired for your health problems that may or may not be a violation of federal and/or state employment law. It's a tricky thing. You would need to ask the advice of legal counsel.

Wal-Mart is a terrible employer. They are not ethical in any way. I have a friend who's been with them 10+ years. They keep changing her schedule in the hopes that she will quit because she's too highly paid now. It's better to go work somewhere else like Target or just about anywhere else would be better. They are the bottom of the barrel.
