Back in October 2018, Ozzy Osbourne had surgery from his hand because of the viral infection.

According to recent report of The Sun, Ozzy Osbourne claimed that he almost died from ‘a manicure’. Here’s the Ozzy’s statement:

“I’m having the best time of my life – apart from that f***ing thing with my thumb, and I didn’t realise that it was very dangerous.

I was in hospital for a couple of days and had emergency surgery, and I remember waking up in the morning and Sharon said: ‘What the f*** have you done to your hand?’

The funny thing is they reckon I got it from a manicure! It won’t stop me from heading to the UK in February.”

He also revealed the conversation between him and his doctor. Doctor said that ‘You must be fucking crazy. You get another staph infection, and you could die.’

Here’s the entire conversation:

“I could hardly move,” he says. “I really had no energy.” The thing that “got [him] out of the blues” was eating ice cream, he says. (He even posted a picture of him doing just that to social media while under doctors’ care.)

After spending a little less than a week in the hospital, he was sent home with a special soap for his hand and was told to soak it twice a day for about 10 days. “I said to Sharon, ‘What the fuck am I gonna do for the gig?’” he recalls, before they postponed the first show. “Then the doctor said, ‘You must be fucking crazy. You get another staph infection, and you could die.’ He said, ‘One’s enough. You’ve got three individual ones.’”
