Ozzy Osbourne will undergo neck surgery to treat an existing condition. This, after it was announced that he had contracted the COVID-19 infection.
His wife, Sharon, was reportedly very worried about him. But this is the first time that Ozzy himself has provided details about the extent of his injuries and the things he needs to do to try to recover. The rock star not only needs neck surgery as soon as possible, but he also needs something to improve his gait and ability to walk.
In an interview with Classic Rock magazine, the legendary Black Sabbath member opened up about his current health issues. Ozzy said he “can’t walk properly these days” due to an injury he suffered in a quad bike accident on his farm in Buckinghamshire, England, in December 2003.
His injuries, which also included a broken collarbone, eight ribs and a cervical vertebra, will continue to cause him long-term damage. “I’m just waiting for another neck surgery,” he revealed. “I have physical therapy every morning. I’m a little better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to get back on the road.” Ozzy was also asked if he frequently considers his own mortality.

“At f**king 73, I did pretty well. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but my time will come,” the rocker said. Ozzy revealed elsewhere in the interview that he will be returning to the UK in the near future.
“I’m tired of living here (in America) now. My intention was never to stay here,” he added.
Last month Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s wife, told Talk TV that the singer had tested positive for Covid-19 and would be traveling from the UK to the US to look after him.
“I’m very worried about Ozzy right now,” she said at the time. But he seemed to have recovered well, despite his risks.
In 2020, when cases were at their peak and continuing to rise, the Black Sabbath frontman said catching the coronavirus would be risky for him due to his poor respiratory health. He said QG at the time he suffers from emphysema, so catching the virus is fatal to him.
In February 2021, the icon shared that he had already received his COVID-19 vaccine.
In early 2020, Ozzy publicly revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In 2019, Ozzy suffered serious injuries in a fall at his Los Angeles home, and in early 2020 he revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
