Post surgery, Bono bouncing back

Los Angeles: U2 guitarist Edge shared information on singer Bono's health saying that he's doing fine.
Last month Bono sustained several severe injuries whilst cycling in New York's Central Park, which required five hours of surgery, reports mirror.co.uk.
During the crash, the 54-year-old singer broke several bones including a facial fracture in his left eye socket, three different fractures in his left shoulder blade and a fracture in the left upper arm, which shattered in six different places.
Three metal plates and 18 screws were required while he was undergoing surgery.
"He managed to come out of it with what you can only describe as injuries from a car crash, literally multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and his back. But he's doing okay. We're kind of lucky he was wearing a helmet, so he didn't actually break Central Park. He's made of tough stuff and he's bouncing back," Edge told local radio station KROQ.
Bono was forced to miss the band's World AIDS Day performance earlier this week.
"He's been told by his doctors to stay put. He's back in Dublin right now and he basically can't move for the next couple of months. The poor guy, basically his left elbow was shattered, so a lot of the work was reconstructing the joints and putting in wires and plates. He actually showed us some X-rays a couple days later, it looked like a miniature Eiffel Tower," he added.
