We’re so relieved to hear Adele is doing well after her surgery, aren’t you?
Our hearts sank when Adele cancelled her tour and had to undergo surgery on her vocal cords. However, the hospital that helped her, Massachusetts General Hospital, released a statement saying the 23-year-old singer is expected to make a complete recovery. Woo hoo!
Here’s the statement:
“Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp. This condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture. Based on the advice of her doctor and voice therapist in the United Kingdom, Adele came to Boston to consult and undergo corrective voice surgery with Dr. Zeitels, the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center. … Dr. Zeitels expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery.”
Adele originally announced she was forced to cancel her sold out tour last month on Oct. 4.
“the fact is i have never been able to fully recover from any of the problems that ive had and then continue to rest even once im recovered, because of my touring commitments,” she wrote on her blog. “ive been offered the chance to not tour at all to save anything like this from happening again, but i simply hate letting you down.”
We’re thrilled you will be back to normal in no time at all, Adele! Feel better during your recovery!
