Adele: ‘My throat surgery was a success’

Singer jokes that she's perfecting her 'mime show' as she recuperates

Adele has assured her fans that her recent throat surgery was a “success”.

The ’21’ singer went under the knife to have vocal chord microsurgery in America earlier this month, in order to stop recurrent bleeding from a benign polyp.

Her condition had forced to cancel all of her remaining live dates of 2011, as she scrapped 10 scheduled dates in North America and six shows in the UK in order to have the surgery.

The star has now posted a message on her official blog revealing that she is “on the mend” following the operation.

“Sorry I haven’t written for a while,” she posted. “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.”

She then went on to add:

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.

In October, Adele‘s representatives were forced to deny rumours that the singer was suffering from throat cancer.

The singer also recently confessed that she would “do anything” to win back her former lover who inspired her ’21’ album, and said that their split made the success of the LP “bittersweet”.
