LFO‘s Devin Lima is recovering from a “complicated but successful surgery” that required the removal of his left kidney, adrenal gland and a “football size tumor” in his abdomen. Lima’s publicist confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the former boy band singer is recovering from a “complicated but successful surgery,” while bandmate Brad Fischetti reportedly confirmed for Page Six the extent of Lima’s medical procedures. Surgeons were able to salvage Lima’s other organs.
Lima and Fischetti are the only two remaining in LFO after third member Rich Cronin died from leukemia in 2010. LFO is best known for their 1999 single “Summer Girls.”
On Wednesday night (Oct. 18), he and Fischetti uploaded a video to YouTube addressing the surgery. In the video, Fischetti informs fans that they were prepared to announce a roster of new live shows but are postponing that announcement as Lima plays the acoustic guitar next to him. A spokesperson for Lima, Alaina Bendi, confirmed the details of his surgery.
“Tell us about your adrenal gland,” Fischetta says.
“It’s massive,” Lima says with a smile. “It’s like Hulk’s adrenal gland.”
Fischetti says that doctors told Lima it would be an eight-week recovery.
“From the wheelchair to the stage,” Fischetti says. “You watch.”
