Lady Gaga’s dog walker is still recovering from the brutal shooting that left him fighting for his life, including an emergency surgery that required doctors to remove part of his lung.
Ryan Fischer detailed the tough road to his recovery on Instagram, sharing with fans a video of himself getting dressed inside of a hospital room — which appears to be for the first time.
Shockingly, Ryan revealed he had been released from the hospital in the weeks following the shooting — only to be rushed back — after one of his lungs collapsed.

“I was recovering remarkably fast. 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. . And so, with the chest tube removed (which I can only equate to an alien baby extraction) and my blood oxygen stable, the journey outside to recover with loved ones began. 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.
Adding, “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.”

“Soon followed a team of people rushing in once more to fix the kink in my chest tube or whatever else was causing the collapse. It became quite clear that my lung was not healing, and the bullet wound had scarred my tissue like a burn. It could take months, if ever, for the hole to seal,” he continued.
Adding, “As I was being wheeled into surgery, I finally accepted my recovery had become anything but a straight line. . Now that I’m finding my way in the outside world where triggers are real and working through trauma is WAY more than dealing with one unfortunate moment in life, I look back at my exit from the hospital and smile that I continue to approach each day the same way.”
As we reported, Ryan was shot at point-blank range in the chest as criminals robbed him of Lady Gaga’s French Bulldogs at gunpoint last month. The dogs were returned after the singer offered a $500,000 reward. The case is still under investigation.
“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…..,” he continued.
