Ozzy Osbourne is home after undergoing surgery earlier this week and thanking his fans for their support.

In a statement posted to his social media, the metal legend wrote, "I am now home from the hospital recuperating comfortably."

"I am definitely feeling the love and support from all my fans and send everyone a big thank you for their thoughts, prayers and well wishes during my recovery," he added.

The surgery, which Ozzy's wife Sharon described as a "major operation," took place on Monday.

During an episode of her U.K. talk show, "The Talk" last week, Sharon said that the procedure was "really gonna determine the rest of [Ozzy's] life." She didn't speak on the exact nature of the operation.

In a statement posted on Tuesday, Sharon said Ozzy was "doing well" and "on the road to recovery."

Ozzy, 73, told Classic Rock magazine in an interview published in May that he was "waiting on some more surgery" on his neck. Ozzy suffered a fall in 2019, which aggravated injuries he sustained in a 2003 ATV accident.
