'Dr Pimple Popper': Delano returns with a lump on his back 18 months after first surgery and hopes for a miracle
Delano hopes that Dr Sandra Lee can help him for the second time as he returns on the show
Delano returned to the show after the lump on his back returned. Delano had previously appeared on the show to meet Dr Sandra Lee as he hoped that she would be able to help him have a better life once the lump is off his back. Delano first noticed the lump when he was 19.
The lump kept getting bigger and it made it difficult for him to do his everyday activities. To make things worse, Delano was not getting jobs because of the lump on his back. This led him to start using a T-shirt to hide his back but that did not help him a lot. It reached a point that Delano had to spend his nights sleeping at the bus station and there was no one to support him.
Delano thought of it as a curse but his prayers were answered when he met Dr Lee. She revealed that he had lymphangioma, a swelling of a mass. While she revealed that she couldn't perform a surgery on it to close the area which led to the formation, she advised him an alternative solution and that was to drain the fluid that was trapped inside.
It took 33 syringes to drain the fluid out but Dr Lee warned him that it would return. To Delano's horror, the lump was back after 18 months. Meeting her for the second time, Delano hoped for some good news. Luckily, Dr Lee turned out to be his guardian angel just like he had stated.
She informed him that he found a doctor who was going to perform the surgery without charging him anything. Delano was overwhelmed with emotions as he knew the surgery would be expensive and he had been trying to save some money for it. Fortunately, because of Dr Lee, he did not have to spend a penny and found a doctor who would help him.
Delano was satisfied with the result after the surgery and was ready to have a new start in life. He knew that he would now be able to be the man that he had always hoped to be and that he did not have to be insecure about his back anymore.
'Dr. Pimple Popper' airs on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on TLC.
