American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is back to work just days after undergoing a 6 1/2 hour kidney surgery.
Phillips, 21, underwent surgery last Wednesday to remove kidney stones that were too large to pass.
“I’m out of the hospital and back to work!” Phillips told E! News Monday. “Looking forward to the future.”
Phillips dad said he was performing at just 50% at his performances on American Idol because of his health issues.
“[America's] just seen a glimpse of what Phillip can do,” his father told People. “We can’t wait to get him well and 100 percent and really see how he can perform.”
Phillips is expected to be healthy enough to join the Idols Live Tour, which kicks off July 6 in Detroit.
