New update from Ozzy Osbourne camp.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Ozzy talked about his health condition.
“For the first, say, four months, I was absolutely in agony”.
“I was in agony beyond anything I ever experienced before in my life. It was awful. I’m taking physical and occupational therapy classes, but the progress is very slow. They say it’s going to take at least a year. I’m hoping that I’ll be okay and ready to go by January [when the tour resumes]. I’m really keeping my fingers crossed.”
He further added:
“When they do surgery on your neck, they cut through all the nerves, and it f*cked everything up.”
“So I’m wobbling all over the place. And since they cut through the nerves, my right arm feels permanently cold.”
Regarding the time he spent in the hospital, he said:
“I cannot describe to you the helpless feeling that I had. I had to use [a walker] to go for a p*e. I had to have nurses, day and night. Just being in hospital is enough to drive you nuts. I thank God I didn’t paralyze myself when I had that accident. I wouldn’t be here now. I would have jumped off the f*cking roof — or fell off the roof, whatever.”
“The nurse told me, I have to be careful if I bang myself because there’s a blood clot and all that sh*t,” he says. “It’s scary stuff … From 40 [years old] to 70 was okay and suddenly you get to 70 and everything caved in on me.”
On upcoming tour:
“My date is January, I hope to f*cking God, ’cause I’m gonna go f*cking nuts.”
“We’re just keeping our fingers crossed. It’s like making a sculpture. You chip away at it and it turns into this thing. You have to resculpture your life again.”
