Ozzy Osbourne gets ready for surgery: “I can’t do it anymore”

Author Flavia Andrade - 19.9.2023

Ozzy Osbourne has spoken of his health after undergoing extensive spinal surgery after a fall at home in 2019 that worsened injuries he suffered in a near-fatal quad bike crash in 2003. The singer said on the second episode of his “The Osbournes” podcast:

Tomorrow I have my final surgery on my neck. Which 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.

Osbourne then told his son Jack:

It’s all right. It’s just like going over for a fucking haircut now… But I have improved somewhat, I think. My feet feel like I’ve got bricks tied to them when I’m walking. I walked upstairs today and downstairs for the first time in a while, and my feet feel like I’ve got diving boots on when I’m walking. I think it’s the nerves… Then I was thinking, maybe I just need to get up off my ass and walk around the block a few times.

Ozzy and his wife Sharon said that this will be “surgery number four”, and Ozzy is optimistic about the next procedure.
