Recovering Adele after throat op: 'I'm on the mend'

Thursday November 17, 2011

Adele has told her fans she's "on the mend" after an operation on her throat to cure problems which threatened to wreck her voice forever.

The Someone Like You singer cancelled a string of shows in the UK this month after she was diagnosed with a vocal cord haemorrhage.

She had earlier complained of her voice just "switching off" when she was forced to call off a US tour.

Writing on her website, Adele said: "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."

The singer was also forced to pull the plug on a performance at the Mercury Music Prize ceremony in September.

She also missed the Q Awards in London, where she had been due to pick up two trophies.
