Dude, rhabdo leaves permanent kidney scarring. If you've had rhabdo, you have kidney scarring. God help you if you've had multiple cases, that's going to make it even worse.

I'm not offended by his shirt, I just don't understand. It's a bit like someone wanting a shirt celebrating them falling down the stairs and smashing their face in, or punching themselves in the nuts while drunk.

Do you have a shirt for either of those? Cause I'd like one.

Dr. Mattes, I appreciate the complementary prognosis, but I can assure you that my kidneys were tested multiple times throughout my hospital stay and several DOCTORS YOU MUST ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE. assured me there was absolutely no damage: temporary or permanent.

As per your and others' opinions on my wanting the shirt, grow a pair (please don't really). I got rhabdo -- that sucks -- but that shirt is f**king hilarious and I'll be damned if I'm gonna let the PC crowd tell me that it's in bad taste to wear it.

Re: Uncle Rhabdo Shirt

How about instead of saying they're in bad taste we just come out and say the truth...they're moronic.

You just described an average day in the life of Matt Swartz.

Also to OP, the shirt isn't funny. At all. Not because it's not "PC" or whatever, it's because it's completely stupid. Why would I ever have a shirt commemorating the time my body couldn't handle a workout?

Re: Uncle Rhabdo Shirt

I came up with some slogans you can put on the back of your Uncle Rhabdo shirt:

"My body can't handle exercise"
"I fail when I workout"
"If I work too hard, I end up in the hospital"
"My kidneys exploded and I'm proud of it"

Jake can finish this one for me: "Rhabdo was just my body's natural reaction to being a ..."

Really what I'm looking for is a clown hooked up to dialysis with his kidneys hanging out.
