Sharon flew back to Los Angeles to be by Ozzy's side as he underwent back surgery. She said the major operation would "determine the rest of his life," as the rock star has been unable to perform due to his back problems.

Ozzy had metal rods inserted into his body in 2003 after an ATV accident, but they were dislodged in 2019 after he fell inside his Los Angeles home which resulted in multiple back and neck surgeries.

The Black Sabbath frontman was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2003 and went public with his treatment in 2020.

Sharon feared for Ozzy as he has battle so much ill health 

He has Stage 2 of the disease, which is considered a "moderate" form and involves stiffness, tremors, and trembling.

"I’m not dying from Parkinson's," Ozzy told the LA Times. "I’ve been working with it most of my life. I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read, ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, 'Oh, my God' You’d go, 'Well, it finally caught up with him.'"

He had also battled a potentially deadly staph infection in 2018 and pneumonia. He caught Covid-19 earlier in 2022, which saw Sharon rush back to Los Angeles to be by his bedside."I am very worried about Ozzy right now," Sharon said at the time. "We've gone two years without him catching Covid and it's just Ozzy's luck it would be now."
