The latest Ozzy Osbourne health update indicates that the metal icon will have to undergo another surgery related to injuries he suffered in a 2019 fall and 2003 ATV accident

The reality version of the Osbournes is back as a podcast. On a recent episode, Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he has to undergo another surgery. The surgery is related to the injuries he suffered in a 2019 fall and 2003 ATV accident. Ozzy also stated that he will be getting an epidural injection to help with his current paint. Aside from these injuries, Ozzy is still dealing with Parkinson’s disease, so it’s a difficult time for the metal musician.

The latest episode of “The Osbournes Podcast” premiered on Tuesday (Sept. 12). In it, Ozzy talks about his health. That includes extensive details about having to undergo his fourth major surgery related to structural damage.

“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’s two vertebrae where the bike hit me and disintegrated, there’s nothing left of ’em,” Ozzy explained on the podcast. He added, “All I know is right now, I’m in a lot of pain. I’m in a lot of discomfort… In my back, the two discs and the muscles on my shoulders have separated from my skeleton, and that’s why I lean forward as it’s like gravity is bringing my head forward.”

Hearing of Ozzy’s ongoing heath issues, it’s not surprising that he recently had to cancel his upcoming appearance at Power Trip festival. The event features a bevy of classic artists, including Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Metallica, Tool and more. Furthermore, in place of Ozzy, Judas Priest will appear at the festival, which will take place from Oct. 6 through 8 in Indio, California.
