If a user has changed. How I can see the permission it had before the change?

Unless you had some form of auditing or tracing in place before that happened, you probably don't.

You can check the default trace, but I'm not sure if database-level permission changes are in there.

Another option is if you have a backup of the database from before the change, you can restore that backup on a test server and examine what the permissions were.
