Ozzy Osbourne has disclosed that in order to put him to sleep for surgery when he was an active drug user, the medical professionals had to provide to him four times the normal dose of anesthetic than they normally would.
The frontman of Black Sabbath, who is 73 years old, related how the doctor who was in charge of putting him under questioned him why he “wasn’t sleeping yet” when the doctor delivered the medicines that were necessary before the procedure.
When Ozzy was involved in a near-fatal quad-bike accident in 2003, things were very different from how they are now. It is obvious that Ozzy’s partying days are behind him, and he leads a much more disciplined lifestyle than he did in the past.
Ozzy has been quoted as saying, “I had a method while I was doing all of this s***,” in an interview with the radio station Sirius XM.
The individual who is loading the items asks, “How long have you been doing this music?”
“And I said so many years, and kept talking. And then he asks, “Why haven’t you fallen asleep yet?”
Osbourne went on to explain that in the end, the doctor had to administer to him four times the usual quantity of anesthetic, also known as “two full syringes,” in order to put him to sleep for the procedure.
Ozzy has kicked most of his bad habits a fair while ago, but he has still had run-ins with relapse, and he recently revealed that he spent £600 on cannabis at one of California’s legal weed shops.
In the end, he came to the conclusion that he did not want to smoke any of the items that he had purchased from the store in Los Angeles, although it appears that it was a very close call.
Ozzy expressed his thoughts on the matter as follows: “I got it, and I thought, what the *** have I bought that for?
“I just got Covid, so there’s no point in my smoking anyway.
I’d got one of those notions, which was something along the lines of ‘that would be good.’
“But I never smoked one.”
Osbourne, when asked about the decision to leave his days of substance abuse behind him, remarked, “The thing that keeps me away from it now is I got honest with me.”
“One of the primary reasons I have embraced my family is because I am not out of my f***ing face anymore,” said the speaker. “I am not out of my f***ing face any more.”
Ozzy has been experiencing recent health issues as a result of a serious fall that resulted in him requiring surgery and a significant amount of time for recovery.
In addition to that, a kind of Parkinson’s disease has been identified in him.
After undergoing “extensive” surgery on his spine a month ago, Ozzy’s wife Sharon recently stated that he was “on the path to recovery” after the procedure.
The 69-year-old woman who used to serve as a judge on The X Factor reported that her husband is “doing well” following the operation that will “define the rest of his life.”
Ozzy has previously stated the following when asked about the accident that resulted in the injury: “I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, lost my balance, and landed flat on my face.”
When I fell to the ground, I noticed a large white flash and said to myself, ‘you’ve finally accomplished it now.’
“I knew it was serious, and I thought I was paralyzed; thus, I remarked very gently to Sharon, ‘Sharon, I can’t move.’” It appears that I’ve broken my neck. Dial 9-1-1 for an ambulance.
We can only pray that Ozzy’s operation was a success and that he will be able to perform again in the not-too-distant future.
