Lady Gaga’s dog walker has been rehospitalized with collapsed lung: ‘Recovery isn’t a straight line’ – Lady Gaga‘s dog walker Ryan Fischer, who was shot in the chest when the star’s two French Bulldogs were stolen on Feb. 24, is sharing a health update on his rocky road to recovery.
Fischer reveals on social media that he was released from the hospital, where he had been an ICU patient, only to have a major setback. His lung wasn’t healing properly and collapsed, leading him to be readmitted less than a week later. He’s since had surgery to “remove portions of my lung,” as it wasn’t healing on its own, and he’s now recovering from that as well as the “emotional trauma” of being shot and left for dead.
Fischer shared a quote he was told in the hospital after he had been moved from the ICU and his recovery was progressing swiftly: “Recovery isn’t a straight line.” He said it didn’t resonate right away, but it does now.
That’s because, “I was recovering remarkably fast,” Gaga’s friend wrote on Instagram. “In days I had gone from bleeding out on a sidewalk, to overly-active ICU patient (which they were VERY not used to), to just waiting for my lung to heal so I could go home: everything appeared quite straight-forward.”
Once his chest tube was removed, which he compared “to an alien baby extraction,” and his blood oxygen stabilized, he was released and his “journey outside to recover with loved ones began.” He was optimistic. “I was prepared to quietly start a path to healing from the emotional trauma and continue on my way. Life would be back to normal soon enough,” he wrote.
But his health deteriorated, he wrote. “Unfortunately, the strange hissing and glugging coming from my chest every time I took a breath begged to differ with that assessment. A doctor visit and X-ray followed, and soon after I was whisked to the same ER where I had been only a week earlier: my lung had collapsed, 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. My mind transported me to that night when I was evaluating the shock and concern on their faces as blood spurted out of me on to them, the table, and floor (and I tried to bring levity to the situation by making jokes and obvious statements like, ‘Well that doesn’t look good,’ as they raced around attempting to stabilize me), but to hear them actually say it… I had truly been confronted with my mortality.”
