Wife gives the all-clear
Ozzy Osbourne is better after surgery

Ozzy Osbourne will have major surgery on Monday. Now his wife Sharon informs the musician’s fans about their progress. Apparently, the 73-year-old is on the right track and can already leave the hospital.

Ozzy Osbourne underwent “a very major operation” on Monday, as did his wife Sharon a few days earlier in the British TV show “The Talk” announced. Now the 69-year-old gave in her Instagram story an update: “Ozzy is fine and on the mend!” she wrote. The love of his fans means “the world” to the former Black Sabbath frontman and solo artist. In addition, Sharon Osbourne, on behalf of her family, “thanked you from the bottom of my heart for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery.”

Photos, which the US celebrity site “Page Six” has received, show Osbourne leaving the hospital. The 73-year-old was apparently taken from a Los Angeles clinic in a wheelchair with his wife Sharon at his side. As “Page Six” reports, he is said to have climbed into a waiting car under his own power. Even before the procedure, the singer and his family were sure that it would “really determine the rest of his life”, as Sharon explained on “The Talk”.

Accident, Parkinson’s and Covid

In May, Ozzy Osbourne had in an interview with “Classic Rock” magazine talked about his quad bike accident in 2003 and that he hasn’t been able to walk properly ever since. “I’m just waiting for another operation on my neck. (…) I have physiotherapy every morning. I’m doing a little better, but not nearly as much as I would like,” said the singer.

The aftermath of this accident isn’t the only health issue Ozzy Osbourne is dealing with. At the beginning of January 2020, he made it public that he had Parkinson’s disease. In April of this year he was also infected with the corona virus. “I’m really worried about Ozzy right now,” said Sharon Osbourne at the time, but at least the Covid disease was relatively mild.

Actually, Ozzy Osbourne had wanted to be back on stage for a long time. His farewell tour had to be postponed several times. In 2019 and 2020 his poor health was to blame, then the pandemic. The concerts planned for the beginning of this year have also been cancelled. They are now scheduled for spring 2023.
