It’s been about a year and a half since The Ghost Inside’s lives were changed forever after a bus crash. The band are still recovering, with many of them requiring multiple surgeries, drummer Andrew Tkaczyk losing a leg and guitarist Zach Johnson losing some toes as a result of the crash. In fact, Johnson isn’t done with surgery, and he just has his 12th operation. Last week, he made a post about it on Instagram, stating that he’s had so many surgeries that he’s used to it by now.
And while the band have no set time for their return, they just checked in to state just that, and expressed hope that they’ll be back soon. It sounds like the band are discouraged that they’re still recovering, but every surgery helps them along some.
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.
