Matthew Rush Reveals Devastating 3-Month Health Battle

 
Porn legend Matthew Rush, who has been dealing with a variety of issues in the public eye over the past couple of years, revealed on Tuesday, July 30, that he’s been going through a devastating health battle for the past 3 months.
 
Matthew (real name Greg Grove) said on Facebook that he’s been suffering from a condition called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. It’s defined as an Age-associated prostate gland enlargement that can cause urination difficulty.

“I didn’t pay attention to the signs and I pushed myself which which inevitably landed me in the hospital for 6 days with pneumonia,” Greg said. “Thanks to everyone and their love and support. Make sure you take care of yourself first! This was a very hard lesson for me because as much as I think I can take on the world, I’m far from Superman.”

Greg went on to discuss how he’s going to start his own “personal transformation” ASAP by beginning a fitness journey that will be as “natural and raw” as possible. This includes him cutting back on red meat and processed foods in order to make sure the condition he’s had is a thing of the past. 

Greg has run into problems lately that go beyond the emergency room. 

He had a string of arrests towards the end of 2017 and into the beginning of 2018. He was first arrested in September 2017 for possession/use of drug paraphernalia & possession of methamphetamine. 

Then, in November 2017, his charged was reduced to a misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia. He was re-arrested in January 2018 when the subsequent court date notices to resolve the misdemeanor charges were not responded by him.

  1. Trivia: BPH has nothing to do with pneumonia and is very easily treated. I recommend a UroLift procedure – they pull the prostate back with kind of clamps to keep the urethra open, no meds needed. Finasteride is the med that helps, but it causes a rise in blood pressure and can easily cause ED which takes on average 4 years to go away after stopping the drug, if it goes away at all (for many the damage is permanent).

  2. I was having a moment of tangential thoughts that led to this article. I remembered meeting Greg a few times in different cities at events that were very supportive of the community. He always took the time to have some very witty small talk and i was surprised that he remembered my name from the first time i met him. This was during the time he was actively working in adult entertainment. My perception is that he was a genuinely nice, witty, very intelligent, and thoughtful gentleman. He was never anything other than that so i have no reason to think that he’s not.
    As far as the story, or article. The answers to my questions were answered. Therefore, i’m probably going to read a few more. Instinct was the first of any media i ever owned that had a gay audience and im very satisfied with the depth of information.
    I respect the ability to share our thoughts. There are hopefully different opinions and additional information that can continue a conversation.
    1. Being arrested for methamphetamine or works to use the drug does not indicate an addiction. Possibility and probability are both subjective.
    2. All the comments from the people that met Greg said he had very positive qualities.
    3. For the person that imperatively suggested to face it because he’s just getting older. I congratulate you for reminding me that anyone that read this whole comment is now older ow than at the beginning of my comment. That time will never be yours again.
    4. I suggest that those who post that an article is a “non-story” would not be going back to read other comments and just move on with life.

    Thanks all for the information and entertainment!

  3. How does BPH give you pneumonia?

    Somehow I feel like the meth addiction is the real problem, one that he’s still not willing to address.

  5. Another non-story. Either what’s online is incomplete and is just filler for ads or we’re not getting the whole story, but just teasers. I’m a longtime subscriber and this has become very frustrating.

    • How is it a non-story? The post clearly tells the story that Rush shared his health scare news on his Facebook page recently and even they even included the FB link for readers to go check it out.

      Or were you expecting Instinct to post his medical records?

  6. I met him years (20+) years ago when he worked for a gym in Columbus before he was in porn. He was one of the nicest guys I met. I wish him well.
