Ozzy Osbourne Has Had Three Major Surgeries This Year
Sharon Osbourne was recently a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote the 10th season of The Talk. While in the hot seat, Sharon spoke about husband Ozzy Osbourne’s continued recovery following a nasty fall that dislodged metal rods in his body.
2019 has been one of the most messed up years of Ozzy’s life. After the fall, plus a bout of pneumonia and blood clots in his leg, the Black Sabbath legend finally seems on the mend after months of rehabilitation. Sharon reveals, however, that Ozzy has gone under the blade three times already.
“He gets up in the night, goes to the bathroom, comes back, falls on the rug and bashed his head on the side table, then he went this way and bashed his head on the post of our bed, and down he went. He didn't put his hands down and he went face down and his neck went back,” Sharon describes. “And he had to have spinal surgery. He'd had a motorbike accident a few years ago and he had metal rods in his body. And the fall pushed the rods through his bones. So he had to have three major operations.”
“No wonder they call him 'Iron Man,' 'cause I tell you, he's got bolts — he's got so much metal in his body, it's frightening," she adds.
Ozzy was forced to postpone his 2019 European and North American solo tour dates, but the metal legend will return to the road in January. For Ozzy Osbourne’s full list of tour dates, click here.
