Delta Goodrem Rehabilitation & Recovery
When a nerve is destroyed, it is impossible to determine when or if it will recover.
Delta confessed in a 2018 video posted with her fans, ‘I don’t want to go out, I’m very humiliated.’
‘I’m really embarrassed, and I’m simply over it!’ ‘I’m just trying to stay optimistic,’ she explained.
‘My sound is my livelihood…’ I’m not sure if things are getting better or worse. It doesn’t feel that that.’
‘I share this with you as an artist revealing where the poetry in this song comes from, and as a human who deeply feels and understands that everyone has their own story and their own problems,’ Delta added nearly two years later.
‘You never know what someone is going through, and this is a particularly difficult time for folks.’
‘So I send you this story with the message of hope and love,’ she said.
Delta’s salivary gland was removed for what reason?
The Australian pop artist revealed that two years ago, she underwent surgery to remove a salivary gland, which paralyzed a nerve in her tongue. She awoke from surgery to discover she’d lost her capacity to talk, which required months of rehabilitation and speech therapy to correct.
What about Delta’s Tongue?
Goodrem reported that she had her salivary gland removed in October 2018. However, complications from the procedure resulted in the paralysis of a nerve in her tongue. “I don’t want to go out,” she replies, sobbing.
Goodrem pointed out in a recent video to her followers that it’s a reminder that no one knows what people are going through secretly.
“I share this with you as an artist providing the inspiration for the poetry in this song, and as a human who deeply feels and understands that everyone has their own story and their own problems,” she explained.
“You never know what someone is going through, and this is a particularly difficult time for folks.” So I’m sending you this story with a message of hope and love.”
