- Richard Reynoso underwent a thyroid operation a few days ago
- This was to remove the cancer cell found in his thyroid
- It turned out that there is a possibility that he would not be able to sing professionally anymore after the surgery
Singer Richard Reynoso underwent a thyroid operation on March 24 at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center on March 24 in order to prevent the spread of cancer cells in his body.
KAMI learned that the surgery was a successful one.
In a report by PUSH (authored by Leo Bukas), the balladeer took to Facebook Live before the surgery to tell the public that there is a chance that he may not be able to sing again professionally after the operation.
For this reason, he sang in the video what could be his “last song” as a professional singer.
“Sa biopsy, lumalabas sa nodule, may expected cancer cell at sabi rin ng doctor, kinonfirm na rin niya na it’s malignant.
“I know for a fact na kahit papaano makakapagsalita ako but Im not really sure if I could still sing the way I am singing now.
“May isang nerve pa kasi sa likod ng lalamunan that would affect the pitch, so yung buong structure nung singing voice mo and all ay maapektuhan.
“Galing sa Diyos ang talentong ipinahiram niya sa akin. Buong puso kong ibinabalik sa Kanya kung Kanya mang kukunin,” he explained.
Fortunately, the operation was successful as no nerve was hit while the thyroid was being removed.
“Halehalehoy! It was a successful operation. Dr. Rene Chan and his group did a fantastic job. It took them 6 hours kasi iningatan talaga nila na walang tamaang nerves habang tinatanggal yung thyroid. No lymph nodes present kaya di pa kumakalat yung cancer cells. No hoarseness sa boses ko. Medyo mahapdi lang lumunok but tolerable naman. Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat. In a month or two, we'll see how my singing voice turns out.”
Richard Reynoso is one of the most successful balladeers in the Philippines. He is best known for his OPM hits such as “Paminsan-minsan,” “Hindi Ko Kaya,” and “Maalala Mo Pa Rin.”
