The Ghost Inside’s Jonathan Vigil Undergoes Ankle Surgery


0

It’s nearly been two years since The Ghost Inside‘s fatal tour bus crash and the band continue to face tough decisions from the injuries they sustained in the crash. That accident took place outside of El Paso, TX on November 19th, 2015 and claimed the lives of their driver as well as the life of the driver of the tractor trailer truck that collided with their tour bus.

Serious injuries such as drummer Andrew Tkaczyk losing a leg, guitarist Zach Johnson losing toes and more were suffered in the crash. Countless surgeries have been performed on members of the band in the months since the crash and frontman Jonathan Vigil recently underwent another one to fuse his right ankle. He commented yesterday, September 19th:

“had surgery on my ankle yesterday. After lots of emotions and a huge internal struggle I decided that I needed to go through with it. I couldn’t live every day being in constant pain anymore. I wanted to believe that my ankle would get better on its own despite what my doctors, friends and family were saying to me. The downside is huge loss of mobility but the upside is much less pain.

I won’t lie to you guys or myself and say that getting my ankle fused doesn’t completely scare me, because it does. Luckily for me though, my doctor is awesome and I woke up in the recovery room to a little note along with the X-ray taped onto my cast. I’m getting closer and closer to being back to what I love and where I belong. And that’s on stage. Onwards and upwards”
