Ozzy Osbourne has sent an update for his worried fans, three days after undergoing extensive surgery to realign pins put in his neck and back.
“I am now home from the hospital recuperating comfortably,” the Prince of Darkness wrote in a statement shared through his social media. “I am definitely feeling the love and support from all my fans and send everyone a big thank you for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes during my recovery.”
Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s wife, released a statement on Tuesday, stating that the operation went well and that her husband was on his way to recovery.
“Your love means the world to him,” she said.
The procedure Monday was at least the third spinal operation Ozzy has gone through since injuring his neck in a trip-and-fall in 2019. Ozzy recalls being in such agony after the injury that he was certain he was going to die.
He’s hoping that this newest treatment will allow him to return to the stage after years of being unable to “walk properly.”
The operation and Ozzy’s forthcoming recuperation, according to Sharon, will “define the remainder of his life.”
Before he can begin recovery, Ozzy will allegedly require round-the-clock nursing care for many weeks. He hasn’t given a complete performance since 2018, despite the fact that he’s released two new studio albums after his accident in 2019.
The 13th solo album from the Black Sabbath cofounder and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is set to be released in September.
