Man, it's been forever! He must be so relieved.
American Idol winner Phillip Phillips has been suffering from HUGE kidney stones throughout pretty much all of the competition.
Now, after having all sorts of treatments to alleviate the stones, he's finally gotten the surgery he needed.
He went under the knife for 6 and a half hours to have kidney stones removed that were so large, he never could've passed them.
He's been in a lot of pain for a very long time so we're so so so glad that he's finally going to be feeling better.
Hopefully he'll be recovered in time to go on tour.
Feel better, Phil!
