The Ghost Inside guitarist undergoes 12th surgery

Friday, April 14, 2017 10:40 AM PT


As scheduled, The Ghost Inside guitar player Zach Johnson 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."

My cousin (Los Angeles native) has been to some of these guys rehearsals. They couldn't play their instruments very well & it ended up sounding like a happy median between Three Days Grace and some sort of pop punk. And they absolutely love it. Trust me.

The advancements we have made in medicine are incredible. Just the fact that we are now doing surgeries on The Ghost Inside of someone blows my mind.
