Adele has admitted that her recent vocal ailments had her despairing, but following the operation on her vocal cords, she had the opportunity to stock of things.

a triumphant comeback, the ‘Set fire to the Rain’ singer swept the 2012
Grammy awards, winning among others, Album of the Year and Song of the
Year. But perhaps her greatest reward was the standing ovation she
received as she performed ‘Rolling in the Deep’ — the first time she’d
taken to the stage since last October, before her throat surgery.
The Grammy-winner spoke of the reassurance she felt when big name stars such as John Mayer, Steven Tyler and Elton John recommended the services of Boston doctor Steven Zeitels, M.D. He discovered and removed the polyp on her cords. Adele said, 'When I met him, I loved [Zeitels] … he made me feel safe.'
Adele’s recuperation following her November surgery helped her to regain perspective on her career. She told Vogue, 'It was so fast-paced I could hardly ever remember the bulk of my day. I think I just needed to be silenced. And when you are silent, everyone around you is silent. So the noise in my life just stopped. It was like floating in the sea for the weeks. It was brilliant.'
She added: 'I had so much time to kind of go over things and get over things, which is amazing. I think if I hadn’t had my voice trouble, I would never have broached those subjects with myself. Now I just feel really at peace.'
