DWAYNE 'The Rock' Johnson experienced "fun pain" when his penis became swollen after surgery.

The 'Fast & Furious 6' actor recently went under the knife after suffering numerous injuries - including tearing his abdomen and abductor tendons off the bone - during a match against John Cena at 'WrestleMania 29' in April and he has revealed that the treatment left him with strange side effects.

He said: "About mid-way through the match I had torn my rectus tendon as well as my abductor tendon off my pelvis, and then I found out that I had three wonderful hernia tears, which I had repaired about three and a half weeks ago.

"There's also a lot of fun swelling in the 'cash and prizes' area for the first week and a half. Those were sexy times. It's a lot of fun pain to go through."

The hard-working star is itching to get back to work on his movie career, but admits his 11-year-old daughter, Simone, with ex-wife and manager Dany Garcia, was pleased to be able to spend time with her superstar father.

He added to 'Entertainment Tonight': "My little girl was so happy that I was able to come home. I said, 'Well, you know daddy's still Superman, right?'

"It was really nice blessing to slow down. It was almost God's way of saying, 'Well, now you're gonna take a break.'"
