At the beginning of the week, Ozzy Osbourne has to undergo major surgery. The 73-year-old is apparently on the mend and can leave the hospital. Once home, the Black Sabbath star reports to his fans.
Ozzy Osbourne appears to have survived his major surgery well. The musician, who once suffered serious injuries in a quad bike accident, reported back on Instagram. There the 73-year-old wrote: "I'm out of the hospital now and at home and recovering well." The Black Sabbath star added, "I undoubtedly feel the love and support from all my fans and I send a big thank you to everyone for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes during my recovery."
Osbourne's wife Sharon had previously given an update on Instagram after the procedure: "Ozzy is fine and on the mend!" She wrote. The love of his fans means "the world" to the 73-year-old rocker. 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."
Speaking on The Talk, Sharon Osbourne said of the former Black Sabbath singer's surgery that the surgery would "really define the rest of his life." The aftermath of this accident aren't the only health issues he's struggling 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.
In May, Ozzy Osbourne spoke in an interview with "Classic Rock" magazine about his quad bike accident in 2003 and that he hasn't been able to walk properly since then. "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.
