Phillip Phillips will NOT have kidney surgery today
After undergoing more than 8 procedures since the beginning of American Idol, Phillip will soon be going back under the knife for what will hopefully fix his ongoing kidney issues that have plagued him for some time. However, the National Media is reporting that his surgery is scheduled for TODAY. This is INCORRECT.
These issues are not something that has happened since Phillip started his American Idol journey. Last fall Phillip was unable to perform locally for several months while he recovered from another procedure. Phillip recovered from this surgery in several weeks and had a short rest before he was thrust into the National Spotlight on American Idol.
In early March, Albany Uncovered reported that Phillip was again having kidney issues and had sought medical attention. Seems these problems were unable to be easily eliminated and Phillip suffered through the pain for the remainder of the competition, under constant medical care.
In March, when I asked Donnie Phillips (Phillip’s Father) to explain why Phillip’s kidneys continue to give him problems, he described it in this way. “Phillip is producing stones but due to a kink in his urethra those tiny stones cannot pass”.
I’m not sure what Phillip Phillip’s upcoming surgery entails but I’m sure Phillip is under the care of the VERY BEST doctors available.
Currently, it is unclear whether Phillip will remain in California for his surgery. However, following a conversation with Phillip’s father, Albany Uncovered can report with 100% certainty that Phillip WILL NOT have his surgery here in his hometown area now will he be having surgery today.
An unnamed American Idol “Executive” has offered his posh Malibu, CA Estate to Phillip and his family, where he could recover for approximately 6 weeks after his surgery.
As we are able to get more information about this upcoming surgery, Albany Uncovered will keep you updated. Meanwhile, please ‘like’ and comment on this article to help get the correct information out. Currently, the national media is reporting incorrect information about his surgery.
