Ruby Rose Hospitalized for Emergency Surgery

Ruby Rose took to social media to share that she needed “emergency surgery” following a stunt injury.

Rose, who is the star of Batwoman decided to share a video of her operation. Read on to watch…

CelebNHealth247.com has the latest from Ruby Rose who revealed she needed to undergo when she risked “becoming paralyzed” as a result of having “herniated two discs” following a stunt gone wrong on a movie.

Alongside the three minute video, Ruby Rose wrote:

To everyone asking about my new Pez dispenser scar on my neck… A couple of months ago I was told I needed emergency surgery or I was risking becoming paralyzed… I had herniated two discs doing stunts, and they were close to severing my spinal cord. I was in chronic pain and yet couldn’t feel my arms… (sic)

Ruby, 33, went on to thank her doctor for their work and joked that she’d filmed the process to make sure medical staff didn’t leave anything ”in” her.

She added:

Thank you, Dr. Bray, for everything you did and for allowing me to keep working and doing what I love. I am forever in your debt. And to anyone asking why I let them video it. Did you not watch that Grey’s Anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?? Also, I wanted to see what happens when we go under.

The former ‘Orange is the New Black’ star also shared another video to her YouTube channel, in which her doctor explained the surgery process.

He said:

She had dysfunction with balance and numbness down her arms, her reflexes were off. So we cleaned up both discs with a microscope and took fragments off her spinal cord.

We cleaned everything up and put in two artificial discs in, so she’ll have pieces that will twist, turn, bend and move like a disc, and will regain full range of motion. She can go back to stunts and workouts, and most importantly now she’s safe.
