    Björk is on the rebound.

    In a message posted on her website Wednesday, the Icelandic pop queen confirmed that she underwent successful surgery to remove a polyp from her vocal cords.

    No word exactly when the procedure took place, but she appears to have opted for the surgery sometime this fall.

    Björk, 47, said she first discovered the polyp a few years ago and tried to rid herself of it by doing stretches and changing her diet, but after advances in technology to treat the condition, she finally decided to go under the knife.

    "Surgery rocks!" she told fans. "I stayed quiet for 3 weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my cords are as good as pre-nodule. It's been very satisfying to sing all the clear notes again."

    The singer apologized for having had to cancel various commitments earlier this year, but she didn't want to release information about the operation until she knew it would work.

    "So looking forward to singing for you in 2013," Björk added.

    Congrats on a successful recovery.
