Lady Gaga's Dog Walker Ryan Fischer Shares Health Update, Reveals Lung Collapsed Several Times After Shooting

Lady Gaga‘s dog walker Ryan Fischer is providing fans with another health update after he was shot while walking her three French Bulldogs last month.

If you don’t know, Ryan was attacked by two men last week while he was walking Gaga‘s three dogs. Two of the dogs were stolen, and video surveillance footage showed the attackers pulling up next to him. One of the attackers pulled out a gun and shot Ryan in the chest before fleeing with two of the dogs. The third dog, Miss Asia, escaped and was recovered from the scene. Gaga‘s two stolen dogs, Koji and Gustav, were returned safely home a few days later.

Ryan made what appeared to be a miraculous recovery and released a statement a short time later. However, now, he’s revealing the long road he’s facing, plus the multiple lung collapses he’s had to face.

“I was prepared to quietly start a path to healing from the emotional trauma and continue on my way,” Ryan wrote in the caption to his video. “Unfortunately, the strange hissing and glugging coming from my chest every time I took a breath begged to differ with that assessment.”

He learned his lung collapsed after being discharged from the hospital and “air was filling up my chest cavity.”

“Along with accepting the news that I was about to be readmitted, several nurses and doctors told me how they had been in the room when I came in with my gunshot. How they didn’t think I was going to make it,” Fischer recalled. “To hear them actually say it I had truly been confronted with my mortality.”

His lung multiple times after being readmitted to the hospital.

“It became quite clear that my lung was not healing, and the bullet wound had scarred my tissue like a burn,” he wrote. “It could take months, if ever, for the hole to seal. Lunches of grilled cheese and tomato soup and art walks blurred into one until the day came to remove portions of my lung.”
