underwent significant leg surgery yesterday at the Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, IA. Johnson issued the following update earlier today via Instagram, indicating that all appears to have gone well:
"Surgery #12 is done. Not gonna lie, this one hurt like a bitch, but I hope it's the last. Took out the metal rod in my femur, the screws in my knee. Drilled out some bone from my right tibia, used a new incision in the middle of my leg to fuse that bone where my break was. New metal rod through the femur, metal plate over the fusion, new/bigger screws in my knee and hip. Hoping my hospital stay won't be too long! Thanks for all the well wishes."
