The Ghost Inside frontman requires more surgery

Precious little about the ongoing recovery of The Ghost Inside vocalist Jonathan Vigil appears to be going smoothly, as he undergoes some unexpected surgery today to replace the support hardware in his ankle, a portion of which broke through his skin yesterday (photo below). Vigil had this to say last night:
"One of the screws in my ankle came out and broke through the skin last night. I didn't even know that was something that could happen. I had it removed today and go in for surgery tomorrow to replace all the current hardware in there so I don't get another bone infection. It delays my recovery longer which means I'm further away from walking on my own. It's irritating, it's disheartening and it's defeating BUT in the words of a very wise man... 'There's no set back that can set me back'"
