He has serious health problems, having been diagnosed with a terrible illness

Ozzy Osbourne is talking openly about his challenging medical experience, which has included his ongoing Parkinson’s disease battle and his recuperation from a major surgery last summer.

The 73-year-old Black Sabbath rocker disclosed that his June surgery was to remove two metal plates that had been inserted into his spine during a previous procedure in a new interview with The Observer.

The surgery, according to his wife Sharon Osbourne, will “determine the rest of his life.”

After standing up and hunching over, Sharon told the source 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.”

Ozzy said, “I’d never f—ing heard of nerve pain, but I got it with the pushing on the spinal column. It’s similar to when you’re a kid playing in the snow and your hands get really cold. Then you go inside and put hot water on them, and they start to warm up. Then you get those chills. And it f—ing hurts.

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

The performer continued by saying that his Parkinson’s disease, which he was discovered to have in 2003, frequently makes his symptoms worse.

He admitted to The Observer that his walking is a continual challenge.

He said, “I feel like I’m walking about in heavy boots. Parkinson’s has taken a toll on my mental health and left me depressed. You think you’re elevating your feet, but your foot doesn’t move.”

Ozzy remarked on his mental state, “I reached a peak that was lower than I wanted it to be.” Nothing felt particularly good, so I started taking these antidepressants, and they seem to work okay.

However, he acknowledged that the worst part of Parkinson’s is not knowing when it will end.

You develop the ability to live in the now because you never know when you’ll wake up and be unable to get out of bed, but you just don’t worry about it.

The “Crazy Train” singer thanked Sharon for helping him deal with his medical issues and credited her with allowing him to keep singing.

He continued, “Without my Sharon, I’d be f—ing gone. We occasionally argue, but other than that, we simply get along.”

Sharon stated that she won’t allow her husband’s Parkinson’s disease to define him and is currently assisting him in overcoming the muscle “atrophy” that has weakened his body.

She told the outlet that while he would never again be what he was, he would still be good.
