Adele's throat surgery is a success

ADELE has successfully undergone surgery Nov 7, 2011 on the throat injury that threatened to end her career.

The singer went under the knife at a Boston hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

In October the 23-year-old was forced to scrap all remaining concert dates and appearances for the rest of the year after suffering a vocal cord haemorrhage.

And at Massachusetts General Hospital she had an operation to stop recurrent bleeding and prevent possible rupture from a benign polyp.

 A statement from the US hospital said: "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 has pioneered many vocal cord surgical procedures including the use of specialised lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers."

The Brit-winner has been advised by doctors to take the rest of the year off to recuperate.

A statement from her management recently read: "It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011.

"She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat — and a full recovery is expected.

"Doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments."

Londoner Adele — whose album 21 is 2011's top seller worldwide with ten million sales — has been plagued by throat problems all year. She cancelled her US tour earlier this month.

At the time, the singer said she was "heartbroken and worried" by the injury.

She added: "I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully or I risk damaging my voice forever."

At a gig at the capital's Hammersmith Apollo last month, she told fans she had quit smoking and drinking to save her voice.

She wrote recently: "Singing is literally my life — it's my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job."
