Lady Gaga’s dog walker reveals his lung collapsed multiple times after shooting, while providing an update on his recovery: ‘The journey is tough’
Lady Gaga’s dog walker suffered a collapsed lung while recovering from a shot to the chest by thieves who stole the singer’s dogs last month.
Ryan Fischer, 30, was shot four times on Feb. 24, while out walking with Gaga’s three French bulldogs, before thieves took two of the puppies, leaving Ryan in a fight for his life.
And a month after his terrifying ordeal, Ryan took to Instagram to share a health update, where he revealed he was on the road to recovery before hearing a ‘strange hiss and chatter’ coming out of his chest.

He wrote in a lengthy post: ‘For me, I was recovering remarkably quickly. In a few days I had gone from bleeding on a sidewalk, to being an overly active ICU patient (which they were VERY used to), to just waiting for my lungs to heal so I could go home: everything seemed pretty straight forward.
And so, with the chest tube removed (which I can only compare to an alien baby extraction) and my blood oxygen stable, the journey out to recharge with loved ones began.
‘I was willing to quietly begin a path to healing from the emotional trauma and move on. Life would be back to normal soon enough.

Unfortunately, the strange hiss and chatter that came from my chest begged to disagree every time I breathed in.

Ryan was re-admitted to the ICU, but thanks to the doctors and nurses who treated his wounds, he has now been completely released from the hospital to continue to recover at home.

He added: “ Now that I am finding my way in the outside world where triggers are real and trauma is working through a LOT more than dealing with an unhappy moment in life, I look back to my departure from the hospital and smile that I continue. approach the same way every day (sic) ‘
Gaga’s two dogs – Koji and Gustavo – were found and returned two days after the attack, while the third dog, Miss Asia, was recovered at the time of the theft.
