The Ghost Inside guitarist Zach Johnson has announced that he has finally been discharged by his orthopedic surgeon after undergoing at least thirteen surgeries for the injuries (and resulting infections/complications) he sustained in the band’s November 2015 bus crash. Johnson suffered a broken pelvis, a broken right femur and had several toes amputated as a result of that accident.
Taking to his Instagram to report on the good news, Johnson stated:
“After more than 3 years, I was discharged from my Otho surgeon! My knee has healed well from the surgery 6 months ago, and my femur is as healed as possible after 3 femoral surgeries, which is amazing, because 6-9 months ago the doctors thought I might end up losing my right leg! It’s been a wild road my friends. Put I’ve been given the all clear! Feels so good. No more check ins, x-rays, injections. Thanks to everyone who stuck with me! 🖤”
