Bjork: Laser Surgery Cured Vocal Problems
Earlier this year, Bjork was forced to cancel a handful of concerts due to continuing problems with nodules on her vocal cords. Although vocal rest and treatment allowed her to perform 10 concerts over the summer, she was still not fully cured by the time her tour ended in mid-August.
However, posting on her website today (Nov. 21), the singer announced that her voice is as good as new. The nodules were removed through laser surgery, and following a period of recuperation, she’s been cleared to resume her career.
The full text of her message reads as follows:
few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords … i decided to go the natural way and for 4 years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not . then they discovered better technology and i got tempted into hi tech lazer stuff and i have to say , in my case anyway : surgery rocks ! i stayed quiet for 3 weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my chords are as good as pre nodule ! it´s been very satisfying to sing all them clear notes again . im sorry i had to cancel stuff earlier in the year , didnt want to talk about this until i knew for sure if it would work . so looking forward to singing for you in 2013 all the warmth ,björk.
