Batwoman star Ruby Rose has revealed on her Instagram that she was forced to undergo emergency surgery to prevent the risk of becoming paralyzed. Rose had managed to herniate two discs whilst performing stunts and was close to severing her spinal cord. Sounds painful.
She also filmed the operation, which I won’t post here due to the graphic nature, however, should you be curious you can watch it over on her official Instagram page. Commenting on the whole ordeal, Rose had this to say:
“To everyone asking about my new Pez dispenser scar on my neck… A couple of months ago I was told I needed an emergency surgery or I was risking becoming paralyzed… I had herniated two discs doing stunts, and they were close to severing my spinal chord. I was in chronic pain and yet couldn’t feel my arms… 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 Greys anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?? Also I wanted to see what happens when we go under.”
We are glad that she’s on the mend again this time. Ruby Rose also went under the knife for spinal issues back in January 2018 and was forced to use a wheelchair as she recovered.
We wish her all the best and look forward to seeing what she brings to the Batwoman role. The first episode of the series air on October 6th so it won’t be long before we can all judge her performance. I just hope fans give the show a chance as social media has not always been kind to it so far.
