Ozzy Osbourne was ‘convinced he was dying’ after medical issues last year

Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he feared for his life when he came down with several medical issues last year. 

The legendary Black Sabbath frontman, 71, had a difficult time with his health after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s, having a fall, neck surgery and being hospitalised with the flu. 

He revealed that at one point he was suffering so much he thought he was dying and was convinced the doctors weren’t telling him how bad his condition was. 

Ozzy explained on Sirius XM: ‘I’m not back to 100 percent. I’m about 75 percent there, but it’s such a slow recovery. 

‘Spine surgery is bad news, man. I’ve been in such a bad state with pain; I’m still having a lot of pain.’

He added: ‘There was a point I was convinced that I was dying. I was in that much discomfort and pain and misery. 

‘I thought they were all hiding it from me. I remember saying to Sharon, “You’ve gotta level with me. Is it worse than you’re making it out [to be]?” She says, “No.” I’ve dropped all the medication for pain now.’

While he is still in the process of recovery, Ozzy is also looking forward to one day performing again – but admits it will probably be a very different experience than before the coronavirus pandemic. 

He revealed: ‘I cannot wait [to get on stage], but I was talking to Tony Iommi the other day, and he was saying with the way it’s going with this coronavirus, indoor shows will be a thing of the past.’

Ozzy also credited making music – including his album Ordinary Man – with helping him cope with his Parkinson’s diagnosis, telling Entertainment Tonight: ‘That whole album came out of nowhere and it was so much fun. 

‘It was what I needed to get me out of my gloom and doom and my recovery.’
