Ozzy Osbourne recovering after ‘major operation,’ says wife Sharon

Ozzy Osborne is recovering from “major surgery,” his wife Sharon said Tuesday, thanking fans for their support.

On last Friday’s episode of The Talk UK, Sharon announced that Ozzy needed surgery in Los Angeles and that she was flying to his place to keep her off the show for the next month.

“He has a very big surgery on Monday and I have to be there,” Sharon said on the show. “It’s really going to define the rest of his life.”

Neither of Osbourne gave further details on the procedure, but Page Six reported that Osbourne had several pins removed and realigned in his neck and back. Last month, Osbourne alluded to the need for surgery in the area when speaking to Classic Rock magazine about its 300th issue.

“I’m just waiting for another operation on my neck,” he said in this interview. “I can’t walk properly these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I’m doing a little better, but not nearly as much as I would like to be able to get back on the road.”

On Tuesday, Sharon thanked fans for their support and provided an update on Ozzy’s health via Instagram.

“Our family would like to express so much gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support that led to Ozzy’s surgery,” his wife wrote. “Ozzy is fine and on the mend! Your love means the world to him.”

Two years ago, Ozzy announced that he had Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder that can cause slow movements, stiffness and loss of balance, among other things. Speaking to The Times in 2020, he said he was diagnosed with the condition in 2003 and is taking medication to manage it.

“I’m not dying of Parkinson’s. I’ve worked with it most of my life,” he said. “I’ve cheated on death so many times. If you read “Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning” tomorrow, you wouldn’t be saying “Oh my God”. You’d say, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'”

Later that year, he said his most pressing health concerns were related to a fall in 2019 that left him with persistent pain.

“I hit the ground with such force that I pinched my spine,” Osbourne told The Sun in 2020. “You had to go in and open the passage. They had to sever nerves to get there and it pierced my neck, back, shoulders and arms. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as bloody nerve pain.”
