Jimmy Barnes updates fans on his recovery journey following major operation to ease chronic pain: ‘Small gains. Have to be patient’

Jimmy Barnes has provided his fans with a health update following a major hip operation he had last month to ease years of chronic pain.

The Working Class Man hitmaker, 66, posted a photo to Facebook Wednesday evening of him riding an exercise bike and told his followers he had reached a recovery milestone.

‘Can cycle for 10 minutes from today. Small gains. Have to be patient, that’s a tough one for me,’ he captioned the photo.

The Scottish-born singer also posted a snap of him grinning from ear to ear while walking down a nature trail with the aid of a cane.

He told his fans: ‘Thanks for cheering me on everyone. Sticking to the recovery program to the letter. I’ve turned a big corner.’

Many of his 744,000 followers were quick to cheer on Jimmy’s progress and offer him their well wishes.

One enthusiastic fan told Jimmy ‘you’ve got this’ while another congratulated his ‘awesome effort’. 

Last month, Jimmy updated fans from hospital following his urgent hip surgery.

Lying in his hospital bed alongside his wife Jane, 66, and daughter Elly-May, 33, Jimmy wrote, ‘When you’re in hospital visitors can be the best medicine, especially my girls.’

‘Today I walked without crutches and physio’s got me into the hydrotherapy pool. Like many of you have advised, I’m going to do exactly as they say,’ he added.

Jimmy cancelled his summer tour in December in order to receive urgent back and hip surgery to relieve chronic pain.

He has been active on social media since his operation and earlier this week Jimmy told fans he was thrilled he was now fit enough to walk up and down his staircase.
