Relatives and fans of Ozzy Osbourne can breathe a “phew” of relief. A few days ago, the Black Sabbath frontman entered hospital to undergo massive neck and back surgery to repair damage to his body after he fell at home three years ago . According to Page Six, this surgery involved removing and realigning the iron rods in her neck and back. “Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is tough,” a source said. Operated on Monday June 13, he was allowed to return to his home two days later, on Wednesday June 15. To reassure his many fans, Ozzy Osbourne gave his news through social networks. “I have now returned from the hospital and I am recovering comfortably”, initially confided the rocker.
And to add: “I definitely feel the love and support of all my fans and I send a big thank you to all for their thoughts, prayers and best wishes during my recovery”. His wife, Sharon Osbourne also gave his news. “Our family would like to express their gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery,” she wrote on Twitter. “Ozzy is doing well and on the road to recovery! Your love means everything for him.” For several years, the rocker has suffered from several health problems. In January 2020, he revealed that he had Parkinson’s disease. “It was terribly difficult for all of us, he confided to Good Morning America. I did my last show on New Year’s Eve at the Forum. Then I had a bad fall.”
Ozzy Osbourne’s illness ‘is not a condemnation’
“I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed up all my nerves. I had never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a strange feeling,” added the rocker. In his fight, Ozzy Osbourge can count on the unfailing presence and support of his wife. “It’s not a death sentence, but it affects certain nerves in your body. And it’s like you’re having a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day,” said Sharon Osbourne. For years, her husband has lived with iron rods after a violent quad accident. In 2019, a fall at his home dislodged the screws from his neck and back.
