Ozzy Osbourne has released a brief statement saying that he is ” recuperating comfortably,” two days after undergoing surgery to remove and realign pins in his neck and back.
Yesterday (Wednesday, June 15), Ozzy released the following statement via social media: “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”.
Ozzy’s statement comes after Page Six shared the first photos and video of the 73-year old frontman leaving a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday. In the images, Ozzy could be seen wearing a black T-shirt, jeans and a blue mask as gets into a black Range Rover with guidance from hospital staff.
Sharon Osbourne released a short statement on Tuesday thanking Ozzy’s fans for their “love and support” leading up to his surgery Ozzy. She also said that he “is doing well” and is “on the road to recovery”.
A source within the Osbourne family told Page Six on Monday (June 13) that there will be a “lengthy amount of convalescence” after the operation, and the legendary heavy metal singer will need a nurse at home.
The source added: “Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is difficult. This is quite major. He’s having the pins in his neck and back realigned from when he had a fall back in 2019.
“He’s been in a lot of pain.”
We wish Ozzy all the best in his recovery.
