The 'You & I' singer was feeling reflective this week after having surgery to repair a hip injury.
Lady Gaga has posted a heartfelt letter to her fans telling them they have changed her life and thanking them for their support through her current health issues.
The 'Marry The Night' singer was forced to cancel the final 21 dates of her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour last night after suffering a tear on her right hip that had left her in "chronic pain".
The US star underwent surgery yesterday (20th February) after checking into a hospital, and shared a picture of the wheelchair she was using earlier this week.
"Monsters, you really gave me a lot of strength today," Lady Gaga began, in the emotional message posted on LittleMonsters.com. "Everything happened so fast, but when it came time to face it I reflected on the many stories and experiences you've shared with me about your lives.
"Meeting you backstage, reading your letters, watching you communicate with fans from around the globe to form a community that supports one another, you have completely blown my mind.
"As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance, your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles, sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me," the 'Judas' singer continued. "I wonder how it's even possible.
"So I thought to myself, I'm alive, I'm living my dream and this is just a bump in the road," Gaga added. "I'm grateful because this is temporary, and for some it's not.
"You have changed my life, I love you and am proud to be a part of your lives.
"If you can do it, I can do it too, and if we stick together we can get through anything. Love, Gaga."
