Ozzy Osbourne, 74, gives health update after “final” surgery

Ozzy Osbourne has undergone his final surgery to mend his broken neck, describing the last few years as “absolute hell”.

The 74-year-old rock icon reportedly suffered serious neck damage almost two decades ago when he was involved in a quad bike accident in 2003.

Then, in 2019, Ozzy took a fall, re-aggravating the injury and leaving the so-called ‘Prince of Darkness’ in a very bad place indeed.

Recently, Osbourne opened up in an interview to provide fans with an update, describing his experience as “five years of absolute hell for me and my family”.

During an appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored, Osbourne was asked how he was feeling, to which he responded:

“I finally had my last procedure two days ago.

“I can’t believe I’ve come to the end of it. The main thing is over now, I’m done with the surgery.”

The Hellraiser singer added: “But it’s been five years of absolute hell for me and my family. 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.”

Jack Osbourne, Ozzy’s son, added that one of the “biggest misconceptions” surrounding his father’s health and well being was that he was struggling as “a result of Parkinson’s”. The truth however, seems to be that Ozzy was most affected by the neck injury and subsequent fall he took in 2019.

“I carried on working with it, until I had a fall and then it just, everything came undone,” Ozzy said.

“I don’t gripe, I get on with it. If you are still moving, you ain’t going to be dead.”

Osboune said this week that the fourth surgery on his neck would be his last, explaining on “The Osbournes” podcast: “It is gonna be the final surgery, because I can’t do it anymore. Regardless of the way it ends up after tomorrow, I’m not doing it anymore. I can’t.”

Earlier this year, Ozzy made headlines after canceling his live comeback tour, months after his ongoing health issues forced him to announce his retirement from touring.

Since his last tour in 2018, Ozzy has only performed twice at live events. Health issues have led to a series of tour cancellations since 2019, including the recent Power Trip Festival withdrawal.
