American Idol Champ Phillip Phillips To Have Surgery Tomorrow (Recap)

On Monday American Idol Champ Phillip Phillips To Have Surgery Tomorrow was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips will get badly-needed surgery for a bum kidney on Tuesday, and he'll be recuperating in style in a swanky Malibu mansion ... TMZ has learned.

As we first reported, Phillip endured immense pain during the entire competition ... the result of a congenital kidney stone problem that has already resulted in 8 surgeries. He's been living with kidney stones that are so big they can't pass through his system.

Doctors inserted a stent into Phillip's kidney 7 weeks ago, as a temporary fix, but the pain borders on unbearable. In fact, when Phillip went home to Georgia a week ago, his doctor urged him to throw in the towel and get the surgery immediately, but Phillip said no.

So we've learned the surgery will take place Tuesday afternoon.

Phillip's recovery is expected to take weeks -- as many as 6. But here's the good news. A honcho from the "A.I." production company has offered his home to Phillip and his parents for the entire recovery. - more on this story
