Adele recovering from throat surgery

Adele says she’s doing “really well” and recovering after last week’s throat surgery in Boston.

“Sorry I haven’t written for a while,” the singer posted on her blog. “Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes. I’m doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all. The operation was a success and I’m just chilling out now until I get the all clear from my doctors. Thank you to everyone who voted for the awards I’ve won recently as well. Hugely appreciated. I best get back to practicing my mime show now. Take care, miss you all - Always adele xx”

The operation, performed by Dr. Steven Zeitels at Massachusetts General Hospital, was to stop a vocal cord hemorrhage from a benign polyp, which has caused the British singer to cancel concerts and personal appearances, in both the US and at home, through the end of this year.

The Boston Herald reported that Zeitels expects Adele to make a full recovery from this unique procedure,

Zeitels, the director of the Mass General’s voice center, has worked on other high-profile singers like Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and the Who’s Roger Daltrey; in fact, Adele reportedly received the same treatment Tyler did back in 2006.

Adele releases “Live At The Royal Albert Hall" on DVD and Blu-ray on November 29.
