Following his health update on the latest episode of The Osbournes Podcast, Ozzy Osbourne shared more details about his last surgery.
On the recent episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored, Ozzy admitted:
“I’ve finally had my last procedure two days ago. I can’t believe I’ve come to the end of it. The main thing is it’s over now, I’m done with the surgery.
“But it’s been five years of absolute hell for me and my family.”
“My family have been so supportive of me. I couldn’t have done it without them. It’s been a really bad scene. I have Parkinson’s, but I never think about it.”
Ozzy needed to undergo neck surgery in 2019 when he had a fall at his home in Los Angeles that dislodged the metal rods and bolts in his back and collarbone and aggravated his years-old injuries from his ATV crash in 2003 during the taping of the hit reality MTV show The Osbournes. During his past surgical operation, it was discovered that Osbourne has Parkinson’s Disease.
Ozzy‘s son Jack Osbourne expressed:
“I think that’s the biggest misconception. So many people think that what’s happened to dad over the past five years is a result of Parkinson’s, but it was really the neck injury and the fall that he took in 2019.”
Recalling his ATV crash, Ozzy added:
“I just got up and carried on but I had a broken neck (vertebra) and I carried on working with it until I had that fall and then everything came undone.
“I don’t gripe, I get on with it. If you are still moving, you ain’t going to be dead.”
The past incident led to the rocker’s retirement from touring. Just recently, he was forced to pull out of the Power Trip festival set for October this year. Ozzy was supposed to co-headline the festival alongside other legendary bands such as Metallica, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and Guns N’ Roses.
