My ears are hurting - please turn down your Caps Lock.

The answer is 'it depends'. What is your job title?, what is the job title of this new chappie (if you know)?. Has any other part of your terms of employment been changed at the same time? What has your supervisor had to say to you about it by way of explanation? - the organisation must have said something.

We need to know more about what happened.
It's not possible to give a yes or no answer at this stage. How long have you been off and have you got a definite return date? Will your health allow you to undertake your previous role in full? Will you return full time or part time initially? How similar is your job to others? Have you been advised that your role may change or are you just assuming that?
You best off asking your employers first what is going on and if this is the truth. Find out from them, ask why and see what their explanation is. Maybe they are considering your health and the other role is more suited for you. They would not remove you from one role to another if they know the role you previously done is the best place for you in the buisness. They may feel the replacement worker is impressive and doing a great job and feel they should keep them there. They have not sacked you and you still have work with them. I guess it seems unfair but it's there buisness and they can give you what work they want you to do.

Not true.
Buildersmate is correct. You need to give more details and you need also to refer to your contract of employment with the company. It is also important that you talk to your employers if you have not been consulted.
ACAS is very good at giving correct advice.

It is not very nice to find after having the stress of a heart attack to find that your job has changed without being consulted! I wish you well.
Meant to give you this link for ACAS

ditto above!

in larger companies and institutions, if there is a demotion in role or pay, you can follow a grievance procedure! BUY what if the new job is more suitable after your event?

find out more before you fight?

and good luck!
