The legendary Ozzy Osbourne was recently discharged from Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday, which is a day after undergoing grueling surgery to remove and realign pins in his neck and back. Page Six reported that a source close to the family told them that Osbourne will need a “lengthy amount of convalescence” due to his age and the intensive nature of the surgery, which will remove and realign pins in his neck and back.
Ozzy Osbourne discharged from hospital
His wife, Sharon Osbourne, has flown in from London to support the “Crazy Train” singer while he’s in recovery. He also had a bout with the virus owing to the pandemic back in April. Osbourne, 73, stood up and got into a black Range Rover under his own power with guidance from a hospital attendant, footage exclusively obtained by Page Six shows. The former Black Sabbath frontman wore a black T-shirt, black jeans and a blue mask, and left with his wife, Sharon Osbourne.
Ozzy, who has been struggling recently, needed 15 screws to be inserted into his spine after he tripped in his Los Angeles home in the middle of the night in 2019. At the time, the rock star thought he broke his neck and ended up needing over two months of recovery and rehabilitation.
“I came down really, really hard,” he told Rolling Stone at the time. “I went slam — on my face.” In May, Ozzy told Classic Rock magazine he had been waiting for his upcoming surgery so he could start playing shows again. “I can’t walk properly these days, he shared. “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.”
We hope that Osbourne will have a speedy recovery. Ozzy tweeted, “I am now home from the hospital recuperating comfortably. 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.”
