Johnny Knoxville TV stuntman Johnny Knoxville is recovering from surgery after having his genitals stitched up.The "Jackass" star was attempting to replicate late daredevil Evel Knievel's famous motorcycle back flip in Oklahoma over the weekend when he landed in the wrong spot.Knoxville was taken to a nearby hospital, but the cuts, swelling and bruising were so severe doctors couldn't operate on him right away. In a phone interview with blogger Marc Malkin just 10 minutes after surgery on Thursday, Knoxville said, "I'm still a little groggy from the anesthesia. I just got the catheter out, and the doctor said I can resume normal functions immediately -- like, manly functions."But Knoxville fears he'll have nightmares about the painful accident for years to come. He adds, "I was trying to back flip a motorcycle. The bike goes up about 15, 20 feet in the air and comes back down and breaks its handlebar off in between my legs. I was laying there spread eagle."They've never seen handlebars break off before, much less between someone's legs."Knoxville tore his urethra in the accident, which will be broadcast on MTV this weekend, when the prankster and his crew of stunt pals take over the network for 24 hours to launch their new JackassWorld.com Web site.
