Ozzy Osbourne is set to have surgery next week that wife/manager Sharon revealed will “determine the rest of his life.”

Sharon made the announcement on U.K’s The Talk where she said, “He has a very major operation on Monday (June 13), and I have to be there. It’s really going to determine the rest of his life. The next thing is my son is also going to have a daughter in about three weeks, and also it’s our 40th wedding anniversary on July 1.”

 

Ozzy has experienced many health issues in the past few years and even contracted COVID back in April. All of his health issues really started to snowball in October 2018 when he had to cancel his then remaining North American tour dates on his “No More Tours 2” farewell tour due to needing hand surgery to treat three staph infections in his right hand.

Things only got worse. In January 2019, Osbourne was diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection that resulted in the postponement of the entire European leg of “No More Tours 2.” The infection developed into pneumonia that landed Osbourne in the ICU in February 2019 which led to him postponing tour legs in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

In April 2019, all of Ozzy’s remaining tour dates that year were postponed following spine and neck surgery after he fell in his home in Los Angeles and aggravated old injuries he sustained from his 2003 ATV accident that nearly ended his life. The fall was so bad at one point doctors thought Ozzy would never walk again.

After all of that, Ozzy would then go public in January 2020 about his years-long battle with Parkinson's disease.

In September 2021, Sharon revealed Ozzy was undergoing corrective surgery for neck and spine injuries he sustained following a fall in his home in 2019.
