Harrison Ford isn't back on his feet just yet.

The 71 year-old actor was spotted for the first time since undergoing surgery on his broken leg, leaving a London hospital in a wheelchair.

With his injured leg heavily plastered, Ford left the medical facility in the U.K. to travel back to the US to begin a rehabilitation program, the Daily Mail reports.

"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," his spokesperson said on Friday (June 20th). "He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."

However it is expected that the injury, which occurred on June 12th, may side-line the veteran star for up to 6 to 8 weeks.

Ford is in the U.K. to reprise his role of Han Solo for filming 'Star Wars: Episode VII' in London's famed Pinewood Studios. He sustained the injury when a spaceship door fell onto his leg.

Ironically it was his character's own ship's hydraulic door, from the famed Millennium Falcon, that caused the damage.

It is not yet known how this will affect director J.J. Abrams' filming schedule, but they will definitely have to "juggle things" around.

When recently speaking to the Daily Express, Ford quipped: ''I am like a battered old Ford. And I keep on coming back for more. If it doesn't look real on the screen than an audience does not believe what it sees.''

Despite one of the main characters missing nearly two months of shooting, Lucasfilm and Disney reiterate that filming will continue as planned and there should be no setbacks.

The other two original cast members, Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher, have joined Harrison to reprise their iconic characters in the J.J. Abrams-directed film. Newer members of the cast include Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o, 'Girls' actor Adam Driver, 'Lord of the Rings' star Andy Serkis and Swedish actor Max von Sydow.
