OZZY OSBOURNE Says He’s Preparing For His ‘Final Surgery’: ‘I Can’t Do It Anymore’

Ozzy Osbourne The Osbournes Podcast

In the latest installment of the rebooted “The Osbournes” podcast, Ozzy Osbourne has given an update on his health status.

He disclosed that he is set to undergo a fourth surgery and is due to receive an epidural injection, following extensive spinal treatment and surgery that he had after a home accident in 2019. This incident worsened the injuries he had sustained from a nearly fatal quad bike crash in 2003.

“Tomorrow I have my final surgery on my neck,” Ozzy said. “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.”

When asked by his son Jack how he is feeling about the operation, Ozzy said: “It’s all right. It’s just like going over for a f**king 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.”

Osbourne was slated to co-headline the festival alongside other legendary bands like METALLICAAC/DCIRON MAIDEN and GUNS N’ ROSES, but has had to withdraw from the event. JUDAS PRIEST has been selected as his replacement. Despite his disappointment, Osbourne is committed to his fans and insists on only performing when he can meet their expectations.

Ozzy and his wife Sharon have verified that this will be the fourth surgical procedure for the 74-year-old artist, who conveyed a positive attitude towards the impending operation.

“I said to the doctor yesterday, you know what I’ve heard, which I have, people have discs replaced that are worked on and they become the strongest things in the bone,” Ozzy said.

However, Sharon added that the doctors have expressed uncertainty about the success of the upcoming surgery.
