A little over a month after announcing his unfortunate condition, John Mayer has underwent surgery to treat a granuloma that formed near his vocal chords.
Hoping to correct the issue that failed to heal on its own, the "Gravity" singer went through with the procedure on Thursday afternoon (October 20).
Updating fans on his throat post-operation, John took to his Tumblr account, writing, "I had surgery this afternoon to remove it and am now on complete vocal rest for a month or more. It's been a very long process in waiting to see if time was an alternative to surgery, but even given two weeks' voice rest (along with many other approaches), there was no change for the better."
Mayer added, "I should be frustrated but I can't seem to stop thinking about beautiful things…I never thought I'd be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage. The only difference between now and when I was 18 is that now I have this beautiful, meaningful record waiting for me when I can sing it. Until then, I'm taking off. Going to travel the country, look and listen."
