"The first four weeks were the hardest," Cowell, 61, recalls. "Because you feel kind of helpless, and it was the first time in my life I've ever felt helpless.... Then you're bored and frustrated, and I was in so much pain."
However, Cowell said that after taking the steps to recover, much of his pain dissipated as if it were a miracle.
"Just like the doctor said, you hit this kinda seven, eight-week mark, and it's like it never happened. I mean, literally like that, so there were a lot of pluses," Cowell shares. "And I didn't catch COVID, so I was lucky."
