'American Idol' Winner Phillip Phillips Leaves Hospital
UPDATED: The singer-songwriter had surgery Wednesday to remove kidney stones.
Days after having kidney surgery, Phillip Phillips is out of the hospital and back in action.
The 21-year-old singer-songwriter underwent a nearly seven-hour operation last Wednesday to remove massive kidney stones that sidelined him during his otherwise victorious run on the latest season of American Idol.
He checked out on Sunday afternoon, his rep confirms to THR.
E! News has posted a photo of Phillips signing autographs and quoted him as saying: "Looking forward to the future."
As previously reported, Phillips had scheduled the surgery only a month before the latest cast of the Fox series embark on a 45-date U.S. tour. A rep for Phillips said he's still a lock for the July 6 kick-off in Detroit.
