The Ghost Inside Frontman Jonathan Vigil Undergoes ANOTHER Surgery

0

No news is presumably good news for The Ghost Inside: after a spate of surgeries on several members following the horrific bus crash in November 2015, things have been quiet of late — at least publicly — which hopefully means they’re on the mend.

Vocalist Jonathan Vigil, unfortunately, just underwent yet another surgery on the ankle that’s been giving him trouble. This time Vigil made the difficult decision to fuse his ankle, which from his description sounds like the best way to finally heal the joint but comes at the cost of mobility.

Via Instagram:

“I 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.

It’s now been nearly TWO YEARS since the accident, and these guys are all still full of positive energy. Incredible.

Onwards and upwards indeed. We wish a speedy healing to you, kid.
