Here's more information on Vocal issues such as polyps, nodules, and hemorrhages of the vocal cords. When Adele had to stop touring back in 2012, she went on total vocal rest, which is part of my Vocal Rehabilitation Protocol. But Adele also underwent surgery to repair her bleeding larynx. She's lucky she still has her voice. I hope that she's learned to sing correctly, because if not, she will be back on vocal rest to cure her recurring vocal issues that will certainly surface again if she's repeating bad vocal habits. I am an advocate of curing vocal damage naturally, not with surgery.
I got rid of my own vocal nodules without surgery, and I help others who are in a vocal crisis to do the same. If your voice is your work, or your life, or your soul - you don't want to run the risk of damaging the cords during a surgical procedure. Just ask golden voiced Julie Andrews.
