Not many people have to go through even one kidney stone surgery, but American Idol winner Phillip Phillips has gone through SIX of them!
Luckily, though, he's okay now:
"I'm doing good, just been recovering and just taking it easy. But also pushing myself to get my strength back and just get some energy back.I'm surprised myself. Even the doctors are surprised how well it's coming along. They've been helping me—I just need to keep pushing myself."
We can't even imagine the pain that comes with kidney stones, let alone ones that require surgery!
He does say that even though he was in pain — and he had to take meds at times to deal with it — he was ultimately happy because it got him out of having to dance!
We can't wait until you're back to 100%, Phillip!!
