Jimmy Barnes’ daughter has given an update about her father’s condition following surgery.

The 66-year-old rocker was forced to cancel a series of shows after suffering from pain in his hip and back from five decades rocking on stage and being bent at the waist.

In an adorable Instagram post on her father’s account, Elly-may Barnes shared an update with a photo of her dad smiling as well as an X-ray of his hip post-surgery.

“Hey everyone it’s @ellymaybarnes, my dadda is out of surgery and awake,” she wrote.

“The doctors are very happy. Thanks for all the well wishes”

Just a day before surgery, Jimmy was in good spirits as he performed a song for his fans with his wife Jane playing the guitar.

“Here’s a beautiful song for you all. ‘Have a little faith in Me’ by John Hyatt,” he wrote.

“I’ll be on the operating table tomorrow so thanks for all your encouraging wishes.”

Jimmy announced late in November that his last performance would be the first weekend of December.

“I’ve been jumping off PAs and stomping around stages for nearly 50 years, but it’s finally caught up with me,” Barnes said in a statement.

“I’ve had niggling back and hip issues for years, but things suddenly got a lot worse over the last few weeks and I’m now in constant and severe pain.

“As everybody knows, it’s against my religion to blow out gigs but the doctors tell me I need an operation as soon as possible and it will really limit my movement for a few months.

“As much as it kills me to inconvenience everyone, I have to get this fixed so I can jump around onstage for another 50 years.”

Barnes joked that his family would have to deal with him playing his record Blue Christmas during his recovery.

“The operation will keep me cooped up over summer and I’m a notoriously cranky patient, so I probably need to buy noise cancelling headphones for my family too – that way they’ll hopefully still be talking to me when I’m back on my feet,” he said.
