Adele had surgery tips from John Mayer and Steven Tyler

Superstar singer Adele has credited a slew of rock stars with helping her recover from throat surgery.

The Someone Like You hitmaker, who scooped six Grammy Awards on Sunday (12Feb12), was offered advice from some famous followers after she underwent an operation in November (11) to treat a recurrent throat condition.

Adele tells the latest issue of Vogue magazine, "John Mayer had it (surgery) done at the same time as I did and he really helped me be chilled out about it.

"Roger Daltrey's had loads of stuff done, Steven Tyler reached out, Elton John. Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don't know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s."

She also reveals her boyfriend, charity boss Simon Konecki, was a pillar of support when doctors ordered her to be silent and rest for several weeks after the surgery.

Adele adds, "He's wonderful. And he's proud of me, but he doesn't care about what I do or what other people think.

"He looks after me. I don't think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn't been for him...

"Now I just feel really at peace. And really proud of myself. I've never fully appreciated the things that I've achieved until now. In fact, my entire life has changed in the last 10 weeks. I've never been so happy, and I love it."
