Zach Roloff is opening up about how his son Jackson Kyle is doing a year after having leg surgery.

Jackson, 5, had surgery last November to help correct the bowing in his legs.

Zach, 32, who shares Jackson with wife Tori Roloff, 31, gave fans an update on Jackson’s condition earlier this week.

Posting a selfie via Instagram, the Little People, Big World star encouraged his followers to share what was on their mind, writing in the caption, “Just me for a change. Curious what everyone has to say at the moment about anything.”

One fan asked, “What is the latest on Jackson’s legs? Is he doing good?”

Zach replied, “he’s good, it’s tough because the screws in his legs help straighten the leg as he grows.”

The father of three went on to explain, “Well for him he maybe grows an inch a year so it’s tough to see and won’t be obvious for a while. An average person with the same surgery you would see the difference a lot quicker”.

Along with Jackson, Zach and Tori share son Josiah Luke, 6 months, and daughter Lilah Ray, who turns 3 on Nov. 19. Zach and his three children were born with achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism.

Another follower asked Zach about Lilah, who lives with strabismus. Strabismus is a “misalignment of the eyes, causing one eye to deviate inward (esotropia) toward the nose, or outward (exotropia), while the other eye remains focused,” according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The fan asked if Lilah will undergo surgery for the condition.

Zach responded, “current plan is too wait till Lilah is talking better and can give us better feedback with the tests they do before moving forward”

“Knowing that I’ll never be able to relate to my kids and can only sympathize,” she answered.
