The 83-year-old actor, who played Del Boy on the BBC sitcom from 1981 to 2003, was forced to pull out of a convention a few months ago due to his health.
At the time he said he was undergoing surgery to have a ‘bionic body part fitted’ but didn’t want to specify exactly what it was as it might make his fans ‘all want one’.
He later revealed he’d been fitted with bionic eyes to make him stop weeping uncontrollably.
Then, earlier this month, he shared a video online suggesting he’d also had another surgery after being seen on crutches.
During an appearance on Lorraine on Wednesday, it was revealed that the actor had in fact undergone hip surgery.
After the host asked him how he was feeling, Sir David offered an update.
‘I [am fine] but I’, having a little trouble getting the muscles back because I was infirm for a few weeks as it were and I wasn’t using my legs at all,’ he said.
‘That’s where I am now, and I am getting it back now and am doing my exercises.
‘But the hip itself is wonderful.’
Last week Sir David shared a video filmed in front of a garage in which he hobbled into frame before chucking his crutches on the floor and powerfully striding towards the camera as the Rocky theme tune started playing.
Hilariously, he started to punch the air and flex his pecs.
The clip was shared on the Only Fools and Horses News Twitter account alongside a caption that read: ‘A little video from Sir David Jason after his successful surgery Let’s send him some love.’
When speaking about his eye surgery over summer, Sir David said he’d needed a ‘canalicular bypass’.
‘Stay with me, it’s not quite as painful it sounds,’ he explained.
‘The canal in-question was in my eye, where a little blockage had started causing it to get a bit weepy.’
However, he said it could all be fixed in a ‘pretty straightforward’ way by having Jones tubes inserted.
Lorraine airs weekdays from 9am on ITV1.
