Sharon Osbourne said her husband was undergoing a medical procedure that was going to 'determine the rest of his life.'
Ozzy Osbourne is recovering after undergoing a major operation a month ago. The "Black Sabbath" singer was spotted using a cane along with his wife, Sharon, and two of their children in Los Angeles on Sunday. The 73-year-old recently caught Coronavirus and has a host of health issues including Parkinson's disease. Sharon, 69, had earlier said that her husband was "on the road to recovery" after undergoing a medical procedure in June. She said the procedure was going to "determine the rest of his life," reported Fox News. Ozzy Osbourne was spotted wearing a black T-shirt and black slacks as he walked down a pair of stairs using a black cane with a shiny gold handle. Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon had visited their son Jack’s house.
Sharon dropped her new show 'The Talk UK' to fly back to LA to be by her husband's side. "He has a major operation on Monday, and I have to be there," she told her fellow panelists on Talk TV at the time. "It’s really going to determine the rest of his life." Days later, he was spotted leaving a medical facility in a wheelchair. Ozzy took to Twitter to address his health. He confirmed he was "home from the hospital recuperating comfortably." The family hasn't discussed the medical issue or the procedure with the press or public. Ozzy thanked his fans for the support. "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," he wrote.
Some reports suggested he was undergoing a procedure to remove and realign pins in his neck and back. "Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is difficult," a source told Page Six. "This is quite major. He’s having the pins in his neck and back realigned from when he had a fall in 2019." Ozzy's issues with his back and neck are believed to have originated from an all-terrain vehicle collision in 2003. He was riding the quad on his property in London when it flipped, causing him serious injury. He underwent emergency surgery for "a broken collarbone, eight fractured ribs that were pinching crucial blood vessels, and damaged vertebrae in his neck" at the time.
Later, he had a fall in the shower that dislodged metal screws in his spine, leaving him requiring more medical attention. "When I had the fall, it was pitch black," he recalled. "I went to the bathroom and I fell. I just fell and landed like a slam on the floor and I remember lying there thinking, ‘Well, you’ve done it now,’ really calm. Sharon [called] an ambulance. After that, it was all downhill."

He spoke to Classic Rock magazine in May about getting "more surgery" on his neck. "I’m just waiting on some more surgery on my neck. I can’t walk properly these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road." When questioned about his thoughts on mortality, he replied, "At f**king 73, I’ve done pretty well. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but my time’s going to come," he added. In an interview in 2020, he said, "I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read, ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'"
"I spoke to him and he's OK. I am very worried about Ozzy right now."— The Talk (@TheTalkUK) April 28, 2022
