Donny Osmond said that doctors told him his spine had displaced due to previous dance injuries and would need to undergo surgery. However, when he was at his home in Utah, he discovered that he had contracted a secondary infection and was unable to move.
When asked if he thought he’d never walk again, he said, “Oh sure, absolutely. It absolutely crossed my mind. But i just didn’t take no for an answer.” He revealed that for a while he could only walk with the use of a walking frame and was worried that he was permanently paralysed.
Opening up about his year-long struggle, the singer thanked the “faith, hard work and positive thinking” and the efforts of the doctors who helped him. Donny is currently performing a solo Las Vegas residency at Harrah’s.
