  • Ozzy Osbourne is sharing some insight into his ongoing issue with his spine.
  • The Black Sabbath frontman had spinal surgery in June following years of complications.
  • Osbourne suffered nerve damage and injury to his back after a quad bike accident at his estate in 2003.
  • A fall in 2019 aggravated the damage further, which led to chronic pain and discomfort.
  • He was then diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2020.
  • During a new interview, Ozzy revealed that before of the first surgery, the doctor said, “You’ve got a good chance of being paralyzed for the rest of your life.”
  • He went on to talk about the procedure saying, “You just don’t expect the surgeon to be a f***ing butcher. I was left in agony.”
  • Ozzy’s most recent surgery was more of a success, but he also explained, “Never have I been laid up so bad for so long. It’s been breaking Sharon’s heart to see me like this but I will get back on tour if it f***ing kills me. He had to cut nerves and you have to take f***ng nerve-pain pills, but I am getting better.”
