Ozzy Osbourne Shares ‘The Hardest Thing’ About His Recovery Process


Black Sabbath icon Ozzy Osbourne recently spoke to Entertainment Today for an interview and revealed the most challenging thing he endured during his recovery.

Ozzy Osbourne has been struggling with health issues for years. On December 8, 2003, he had an accident with his quad bike and was rushed into emergency surgery since the accident broke his collar bone, eight ribs, and a neck vertebra. After the operation, Osbourne’s collarbone, which interrupted blood flow to his arm, was lifted.

As it turned out, Osbourne had stopped breathing after the accident, and his bodyguard resuscitated him. So, the accident was pretty serious. After staying in the hospital to recover from the accident, Osbourne struggled with short-term memory loss. Although he felt better after a while, the singer needed more surgery on his neck.

Due to the accident, Osbourne also suffered issues that prevented him from walking properly. Along with physical therapy, the rocker had to undergo life-changing surgery. On June 13, Ozzy underwent an operation to remove and realign pins in his neck and back. Speaking to Entertainment Today, the Prince of Darkness updated fans about his post-surgery status.

Osbourne told ET that he has been doing great but missed performing on the stage and seeing his fans. Describing this feeling as the most challenging thing of the last three years, Osbourne added that he is slowly recovering. So, it seems Osbourne will return to the stage as soon as he feels better because he misses his fans a lot.

During the conversation, Ozzy Osbourne said the following about his health status:

“It’s great, it’s great. I like to see people, you know. That’s been the hardest thing of the past three years because I’ve been trying to recover from my surgery. I’m getting there. It’s a slow climb back, you know?”
