The Ghost Inside guitarist faces recovery setback, looking at 11th surgery
The Ghost Inside guitarist Zach Johnson is facing a potential surgery on his femur. The news was unexpected for everyone, as it was found when Johnson went in for a check-up on his pelvis/hip.
“Turns out my femur hasn't healed, could be due to infection, or just bad luck,” the guitarist said on his Instagram. “They're setting up an array of tests, which will more than likely end up in surgery again. Which would make it my 11th procedure.”
You can read Johnson’s post below. This comes following the Ghost Inside’s tragic bus accident last November that claimed the lives of two drivers. The band’s members were left in stable condition, but have all faced extensive recovery processes.
Went in for a check up on my pelvis/hip. Then this came out of nowhere. Turns out my femur hasn't healed, could be due to infection, or just bad luck. They're setting up an array of tests, which will more than likely end up in surgery again. Which would make it my 11th procedure. Life loves throwing curveballs, it's just about how you handle them. The love and support from my brothers in the band, family, friends, and all of you means more to myself and the others than you'll ever know. Keep swinging.
