Ozzy Osbourne, at 74, shares a candid health update following what he refers to as his “final” surgery

The renowned rock icon, often dubbed “The Prince of Darkness,” has confronted a series of health challenges over the years, with recent times proving particularly arduous. Since his quad-bike mishap in 2003, Osbourne’s health journey has been marked by setbacks. In 2019, another perilous incident occurred when he suffered a fall in his bathroom, resulting in dislodged metal screws in his spine. His wife, Sharon Osbourne, has been vocal about his health struggles, disclosing that he was on the brink of yet another surgery, one that could profoundly influence his future.

In a recent update, Ozzy himself addressed his latest surgical endeavor to repair his fractured neck, reflecting on the past few years as “absolute hell.” His words echo a sense of relief and exhaustion as he acknowledges the end of this chapter in his health journey. “I finally had my last procedure two days ago,” he reveals. “I can’t believe I’ve come to the end of it. The main thing is over now, I’m done with the surgery.”

Despite the challenges, Ozzy expresses gratitude for the unwavering support of his family throughout this turbulent period. “But it’s been five years of absolute hell for me and my family,” he acknowledges. “The family has 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.”

Contrary to some assumptions, Ozzy clarifies that his health issues are not solely attributed to Parkinson’s disease but were exacerbated by the neck injury and subsequent fall he endured in 2019. Despite the hardships, he maintains a resilient outlook, declaring, “I don’t gripe, I get on with it. If you are still moving, you ain’t going to be dead.”

Addressing his recent surgery on “The Osbournes” podcast, Ozzy emphasizes that this will be his final intervention. “It is gonna be the final surgery because I can’t do it anymore,” he asserts. “Regardless of the way it ends up after tomorrow, I’m not doing it anymore. I can’t.”

Earlier this year, Ozzy announced his retirement from touring, marking the end of an era for the Black Sabbath frontman. While he has only made rare appearances at live events since his last tour in 2018, fans continue to rally behind him, wishing him improved health and well-being.
