Veteran rocker Lou Reed is plotting his stage comeback after undergoing a liver transplant, declaring: "I am bigger and stronger... than ever."

The former Velvet Underground singer scrapped a string of live dates in April (13) to undergo the life-saving operation in Cleveland, Ohio.

His musician wife Laurie Anderson broke the news of the procedure over the weekend (01Jun13), telling Britain's The Times, "I don't think he'll ever totally recover from this", but Reed has taken to his Facebook.com page to assure fans he is bouncing back quickly.

He writes, "I am a triumph of modern medicine, physics and chemistry. I am bigger and stronger than... ever. My (martial art) Chen Taiji and health regimen has served me well all of these years, thanks to (my instructor) Master Ren Guang-yi. I look forward to being on stage performing, and writing more songs to connect with your hearts and spirits and the universe well into the future."
