Ruby Rose has emergency surgery after stunt injury almost left her paralyzed
LOS ANGELES — Ruby Rose had emergency surgery after a serious injury left her at risk of being paralyzed, the actress and model said on Instagram.
The “Orange Is the New Black” star documented the experience and, to some viewers’ horror, included graphic video of her surgery.
“To anyone asking why I let them video it..Did you not watch that Greys anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient??” Rose joked in the video caption. “Also I wanted to see what happens when we go under.”
Rose said she herniated two discs while performing stunts a couple months ago. The injury came close to severing her spinal cord, leaving her in “chronic pain” and unable to feel her arms.
This wasn’t the first time Rose has had serious surgery. Last January, Rose revealed she had to use a wheelchair after going through a back procedure for her spinal issues, according to People.
Rose is set to debut as “Batwoman” in The CW series which premieres on Oct. 6.
