ESPN reports that Matt Harvey has been cleared to start on Opening Day after passing some blood clots from his bladder. For those unfamiliar with the condition, (a) it hurts and (b) it is related to urinary stasis. That’s fancy nurse talk for Matt Harvey needs to go relieve his pee-pee more.
“I guess the main issue is I hold my urine in for too long instead of peeing regularly,” Harvey said with a laugh. “I guess I have to retrain my bladder to use the restroom a little bit more instead of holding it in. I guess that’s what caused the bladder infection.”
Gentlemen, as the resident nurse, this is your PSA for today. Go pee. Often. Do not hold it in. You’re welcome.
Edit: Socratic posted something similar, but this is more of a public service announcement. This is sort of my area of expertise. And remember…
