The Prince Of Darkness is on the mend after major surgery.

In a social media update shared by his wife Sharon, she wrote "our family would like to express so much gratitude for the overwhelming amount of love and support leading up to Ozzy’s surgery!"

"Ozzy is doing well and on the road to recovery! Your love means the world to him.”

The Black Sabbath frontman was pictured leaving a hospital in Los Angeles in a wheelchair, but could stand and climb into a waiting car.

The nature of the surgery has been disclosed, but Sharon recently said the operation was "really going to determine the rest of his life."

Per The Guardian, the rockstar said he was waiting to undergo a procedure on his neck, after a 2019 fall exacerbated a quad bike injury he had sustained in 2003.

PageSix reported there would be a “lengthy amount of convalescence” after the operation, with a nurse likely to be brought into the home during recovery.

A source told PageSix  “Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is difficult."

The Prince of Darkness is hoping to get back on the road for one last tour, with the cheekily titled "No More Tours 2" cancelled numerous times due to health issues and the Covid-19 pandemic.

The star is set to play Dublin's 3Arena on June 10th, 2023, but nothing is ever certain with Ozzy.

The show was meant to take place as far back as January 2019, but has been pushed numerous times since.

After bursting onto the scene as the frontman of the blues-infused metal band Black Sabbath in 1969, Ozzy has become the elder statesman of rock music.

The singer collaborated with Post Malone on his 2019 album 'Hollywood's Bleeding' and released his most recent album 'Ordinary Man' in early 2020, which featured a barnstorming duet with Elton John.
