Ozzy Osbourne is now taking his time to recover following a recent major surgery to remove and realign pins in his neck and back, according to his wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne.
Last week, Sharon confirmed on the British show The Talk that Ozzy will undergo a “very major operation” on June 13 that was “really going to determine the rest of his life,” and after the surgery, Sharon shared an update on Ozzy’s condition on Twitter that read:
“Our family would like to express so much gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery! Ozzy is doing well and on the road to recovery! Your love means the world to him.”
The Prince of Darkness told LouderSound last May:
“I’m just waiting on some more surgery on my neck. I can’t walk properly these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road.”
The rocker has handled vertebrae problems since his accident on an ATV in 2003 that nearly killed him. The crash happened during the taping of the hit reality MTV show The Osbournes. Fast forward in 2019, he had a fall in February which dislodged the metal rods and bolts in his back and collarbone from the surgery after the ATV crash.
During his surgical operation to treat the neck injury in 2019, it was discovered that Ozzy has Parkinson’s Disease. While, before his recent surgery, the singer was also affected by COVID-19.
Meanwhile, aside from his health concerns, Ozzy’s new album is expected to be released in September. The upcoming project includes guest appearances from Eric Clapton, Robert Trujillo, the late Taylor Hawkins, and Chad Smith.
