Exclamation Clear Bubbles on Shubunkin/Comet Goldfish;Staying near surface

Hello

We have a Shubunkin/Comet Goldfish that we have in a hospital tank that has made a great recovery from almost dying about 2 months ago (was chased by other Shubunkins/comets into a very shallow spot in the pond (we have an ~8,000 gallon koi pond) have a and half of its body exposed to the air until we found and saved it)...I just noticed a weird collection of air bubbles on it's under belly and side of it's face that were not there before...The fish is also visiting the surface of the water frequently (which is also unusual compared to its normal behavior) - at about a 45 degree angle (usually the fish likes to be in the bottom corners of the tank). I researched what it could possibly be, but none of the potential issues seem to fit...I am hoping someone can offer some insight as soon as possible! THANK YOU!

I tried adding photos of the fish, but was unsuccessful - if someone knows how, please advise! Thank you!

I cannot help with the fish, but you can upload to Imgur, then post the link here for the pictures.

Iím not sure if this is helpful, but Iíve seen the bubbles on my fancy goldfish before. Usually I see these after a water change when the fish is a little stressed. I think it has something to do with the slime coat. Normally it goes away. I know thatís not much, but Iíve seen this behavior before as well.
