Florence Welch says her voice is 'back a hundred percent'.
The Florence and The Machine front woman was ordered to rest up after injuring her vocal cords recently. She believes she has made a full recovery after following doctor's orders. Florence admits she will struggle to forget the shocking experience.
"It's the most frightening thing, literally," Florence explained to Us Weekly. "I think it's back a hundred percent. I had a full check up and he said that there wasn't any permanent damage that couldn't be restored without rest. So if I keep taking care of myself there won't be any reoccurrences."
Florence had to cancel scheduled festival performances and pull out of dates on her US tour. The 25-year-old flame haired singer says the hardest part of the recovery process was taking better care of herself in general, which included giving up caffeine.
"No tea, no coffee! That was the hardest part," she revealed.
"I had been on such a caffeine kick up until then. I was fully back on five diet cokes a day and two coffees in the morning. I was really twitching my way through life, but I was completely loving it. And I had to cut it out completely. And I managed to get properly hurt again and had to cut everything out, so I'm back on the herbal tea."
