But he's not gonna do it! No matter what his doctor said!
As we previously mentioned, American Idol contestant, Phillip Phillips has been having some serious kidney problems.
He has a blockage caused by kidney stones and, even though he got a minor surgery to help alleviate the condition until he can go have a real surgery, he's still in an incredible amount of pain.
His doctor said a temporary fix isn't going to cut it and he needs to get surgery NOW, but Phillip refuses to drop out of the competition! He's so dedicated!
His doc said he MUST go into surgery immediately after the finale.
We liked Phillip before but now… wow! He's so strong, and dedicated, and maybe reckless but it just shows that his music means more to him than even his own health!
Idol is allowing him to miss field productions, such as commercial shoots, because they don't want to stress his body too much.
So nice they're being so caring.
Best of luck and feel better!!
