Ozzy Osbourne is being frank about his difficult medical journey, which has included his continuous struggle with Parkinson’s disease and his recovery after a significant surgery last summer.

In a recent interview, the 73-year-old Black Sabbath rocker revealed that the purpose of his June surgery was to remove two metal plates that had been implanted into his vertebrae during a prior procedure.

His wife Sharon Osbourne claims that the procedure will “determine the rest of his life.”

Sharon explained that “the screws had come loose and were chipping away at the bone, and the debris had lodged under his vertebrae, so his spine, instead of being like this, was like this”.

“I’d never f—ing heard of nerve agony, but the pressing on my spinal column gave me it,” stated Ozzy. ” It’s like when your hands feel incredibly chilly while you’re a child playing in the snow. They begin to warm up after you go inside and pour hot water over them. You then experience chills. It also really aches.”

I prayed at one point, “Oh God, please don’t let me wake up tomorrow morning,” because it was “f—ing pain.”

The artist continued by adding that his 2003 diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease frequently made his symptoms worse.

He acknowledged that he had trouble walking on a regular basis.

“I feel like I’m walking about in heavy boots,” he added. ” My mental health has suffered as a result of Parkinson’s, and I am now depressed. Even when you think you’re raising your feet, nothing happens.”

“I hit a peak that was lower than I wanted it to be,” Ozzy said in reference to his mental state. ” I started taking these antidepressants since nothing felt particularly pleasant, and they appear to be effective.”

The worst aspect of Parkinson’s, he admitted, is not knowing when it will stop.

Because you never know when you’ll wake up and be unable to get out of bed, you learn to live in the moment and stop worrying about it.

The “Crazy Train” singer expressed his gratitude to Sharon for helping him manage his health problems and for enabling him to continue performing.

“Without my Sharon, I’d be f—ing gone,” he continued. ” Other than the occasional argument,” we simply get along.

According to Sharon, who is helping her husband fight the muscle “atrophy” that has weakened his body, she won’t let her husband’s Parkinson’s condition define him.”

He would never be what he was again, but he would still be good,” she told the public.
