Last month, Cyrus took a break from performing when she was admitted to a local hospital. She posted she had tonsilitis on social media. A source confirmed to People, she had surgery to correct the issue.

While Cyrus spent a lot of time reconstructing her hospital gown and looking on the bright side, her boyfriend, Cody Simpson, came to her aide to serenade and care for his leading lady.

While Cyrus healed from having her tonsils removed, another issue had been brewing for years. It was something she didn’t even know was happening until now.

Multiple sources confirmed to People that Cyrus left the hospital after having surgery on her vocal cords. the problems were discovered when Cyrus was admitted for tonsilitis. She was told she’d have to have surgery before the end of the year.

Simpson posted a black-and-white photo on his Instagram page with the caption “success,” which was likely alluding to the surgery.

“On vocal rest not body,” she shared on an Instagram story. Her last performance was in September, with tonsil surgery to follow.

Unfortunately, the recovery process for vocal cord surgery will be several weeks of silence. All of the new music and shows Cyrus had on tap is on indefinite hold.

Another source told people the singer is “doing great and will be back and better than ever early next year.”

Pop singer, Meghan Trainor knows the vocal cord recovery all too well. During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Trainor spoke of the grueling process to get back to normal.

“I really couldn’t talk since December,” she said. “So it was like three months of vocal rest, and then we decided: ‘Let’s get the surgery before Ellen, and then when we recover, it’s gonna be tight, but you’ll be able to sing on Ellen.’ I was like, ‘Okay let’s do it.’ And we did it, and we pulled it off. It was tough.”

Trainor revealed she couldn’t speak for months and relied on her cell phone to communicate. If this is what Cyrus will go through, it’ll be well into the new year before fans get any more music or shows. Luckily, there’s always Simpson’s PDA posts on Instagram to get us through.
