E News is reporting that Phillip Phillips will return to Georgia after his New York press tour next week to undergo surgery for a chronic kidney stone problem. It’s possible he may miss the 1st few dates of the American Idol tour:
According to TMZ, Doctors are urging American Idol Final 2 contestant, Phillip Phillips to get surgery NOW to treat a chronic kidney stone ailment that has been plaguing him all season. Phil, according to sources, is determined to work through the pain and will probably go under the knife immediately after the finale.
The recovery time is 6 weeks, meaning he will likely miss the beginning of the American Idols Live tour. That matches up to what Phil’s dad told some fans over the weekend during the Idol star’s hometown visit.
American Idol finalist, Phil Phillips was suspiciously absent from last week’s Ford commercial, which led some to speculate he might still be suffering from the health issued that plagued him early in the competition. Phil’s mom confirms he’s still not feeling well and is asking for your prayers on her Facebook page.
