Not everyone could tough it out for the long haul on American Idol while suffering from continuous pain due to kidney stones, but Phillip Phillips seemed to manage. He waited it out and eventually won the show. During his stint on the reality TV competition, he had to undergo eight surgeries so he could continue on with his Idol journey.
He was set to undergo surgery to repair his kidney today, but is now being rescheduled due to a high fever of which Phillip is suffering. He had a stent put in his kidney two months ago and was expected to undergo surgery today.
We’re told Phillip now has a bad sinus infection that has triggered a high fever. As a result surgeons will not operate.
We’re told the surgery has been rescheduled for early next week.
We hope he’s still able to get his health back on track in time for the Idol tour. We know fans will be disappointed if he’s not able to perform. At least the Idol producers are taking good care of our man Phillip. One of the producers will allow Phillip to recover from his surgery inside his own pricey mansion. Nice!
