American Idol Champ Phillip Phillips Has Surgery
We're told Phillip had the 6 and a half hour long surgery in L.A. Wednesday -- and he is recovering well. The stones that were removed were so huge there was no chance he could've passed them on his own.
As TMZ first reported, Phil was scheduled to have the surgery last week ... but it was delayed because he had a fever and sinus infection.
Phillip suffered through excruciating pain during the entire season of 'Idol.' It obviously paid off. more on this story
