The Rolling In The Deep hitmaker was forced to scrap a number of live dates last November after suffering a haemorrhage to her vocal chord.
She then had to have microsurgery to stop the bleeding that resulted from a benign polyp, leaving the Tottenham songstress out of action for the last few months.
Adele has now addressed her ordeal in an interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, where she revealed: "It felt like someone put a curtain over my throat. It felt like something popped in my throat,"
"I had laser surgery. [They] put lasers down your throat, cut off the polyp, and kind of laser your haemorrhage back together and fix it."
The Someone Like You hitmaker also confirmed reports that she used a smartphone app to communicate during her recovery, telling Cooper: "I had an application on my phone that you type the words into it and then it speaks it.
"But the great thing is I love to swear. Most of [the apps] you can't swear on, but I found this one app where you can swear, so I'm still really getting my point across,"
