Adele fans need not worry. Though the soulful English singer recently had corrective surgery to remove a benign polyp that was causing recurrent bleeding of her vocal cords, she posted a note to fans on Monday, November 15, to update them on her condition post-op, reports MTV News

"Sorry I haven't written for a while. Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes," she wrote. "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."

Last week, doctors released a statement on the "Rolling in the Deep" singer's condition as well.


"Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp," read a statement from Massachusetts General Hospital, where the surgery took place. "This condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessls 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."

The soul singer was forced to wrap up her 2011 tour early under doctors orders. The tour had previously been called off after a bout of laryngitis. Although Adele is on the mend, she likely won't hit the stage until 2012.
