The Ghost Inside’s Zach Johnson Has Been Discharged By His Surgeon Following 13 Surgeries Since 2015 Bus Crash


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! 🖤”
