Ozzy Osbourne is set to undergo grueling surgery Monday to remove and realign pins in his neck and back, Page Six is told.

The Black Sabbath star’s wife Sharon Osbourne has flown from London to be by his side.

There will be a “lengthy amount of convalescence” after the operation, according to a family source, and the singer will need a nurse at home.

The source added: “Ozzy is 73 and any kind of surgery when you get older is difficult. This is quite major. He’s having the pins in his neck and back realigned from when he had a fall back in 2019.

“He’s been in a lot of pain.”

Speaking on the British talk show “The Talk” last week, Sharon said the “major operation” could  “determine the rest of his life.” 

“He has a very major operation on Monday, and I have to be there,” the 69-year-old TV star said. “It’s really going to determine the rest of his life.”

Ozzy suffered injuries during a quad biking accident in 2003, exacerbated in 2019 by a fall at his LA home that required 15 screws to be inserted in his spine. 

“I came down really, really hard,” he told Rolling Stone. “I went slam — on my face.” He had gotten up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and tripped in the dark.

The injury sustained and subsequent surgery — which included a two-month recovery — to ease the pain forced the rock star to reschedule all of his 2019 live dates on the “No More Tours 2 Tour.”

The singer said the surgery left him with nerve damage, and in 2020 he revealed a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. “I’m not dying from Parkinson’s. I’ve been working with it most of my life,” he said.

Last month, Ozzy told Classic Rock magazine he was waiting for surgery on his neck. 

“I can’t walk properly these days, he said: “I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road.”

While recovering in 2019, he made the album “Ordinary Man,” which became his highest-charting solo album in the UK and US, reaching No 3 in both countries.
