Her whole life has been turned upside down as a result of her synovitis condition, and Lady Gaga has been confined to a wheelchair following emergency surgery on her hip.

The “Edge of Glory” babe tweeted a picture of her new contraption, complete with its moniker- “This is Emma,” reads the caption.

Given her joint-swelling ailment, Gaga has been forced to cancel 25 concert dates on her Born This Way Ball tour, and she’s had a hard time dealing with it all.

Lady Gaga explained, "I barely know what to say. I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now, and over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff. I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However, after last night's performance I could not walk and still can't."

"I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. I'm devastated & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible. I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry."
