Ozzy has suffered with back problems for years

Sharon spoke previously about Ozzy's surgery and 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. He went under the knife to fix it but later shared that "the first guy didn't do a very good job".

Ozzy is now back home with Sharon in LA

"So, I came out of the surgery. Jack [Osbourne] has got videos of me before and after the surgery and this guy [expletive] me up," he said.

He hoped the second surgery would fix some of the lingering issues and told Classic Rock earlier in 2022 that he "can't walk properly these days".

"I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road," he explained.
