In a recent episode of the Osbourne family podcast, aptly named The Osbournes Podcast, the former lead vocalist disclosed that he is in need of additional surgical procedures.

He opened up to his wife Sharon, son Jack, and daughter Kelly, that he is presently grappling with considerable pain and discomfort.

Additionally, Osbourne – who is also living with Parkinson’s – revealed that he would soon be undergoing his fourth surgical procedure and may need an epidural injection.

Ozzy’s health challenges have stemmed from a string of unfortunate events spanning the past few years.

It all began with a mishap at his residence in 2019, aggravating injuries he had previously endured from a bike accident in 2003 – a crash from which he miraculously emerged alive.

When questioned about his well-being by his son Jack, Ozzy candidly said: “My lower back is… I’m going for an epidural soon because what’s happening, what they’ve discovered is the neck has been fixed, below the neck there are two vertebrae where the bike hit me and disintegrated, there’s nothing left of them.”

Jack asked: “Are they fusing discs?”

To which Osbourne swiftly responded: “I don’t know what the f*** they’re doing,” with Sharon adding that she wasn’t sure about the technical terminology.

The ‘Crazy Train’ singer proceeded to provide insight into the overwhelming pain he is presently enduring: “All I know is right now, I’m in a lot of pain, I’m in a lot of discomfort.”

As the conversation progressed, Jack asked about Osbourne’s upcoming ‘other surgery’, marking it as his fourth, while Kelly suggested the prospect of seeking a second medical opinion.

Osbourne added: “I said to the doctor yesterday, you know what I’ve heard, which I have… people have discs replaced that are worked on and they become the strongest things in the bone.”

The metal icon clarified that his condition entails the disconnection of two discs in his back and the detachment of shoulder muscles from his skeletal structure.

This has resulted in his distinctive forward-leaning posture, a sensation he likened to gravity tugging his head forward.
