Ruby Rose opened up to her followers, sharing a video of an emergency surgery she had after a serious injury at work.

The 33-year-old actress revealed that she herniated two discs while doing stunt work, "and they were close to severing my spinal chord," she wrote.

"I was in chronic pain and yet couldn’t feel my arms," Rose shared.

So doctors urged her to have an emergency surgery to correct the problem, or risk being paralyzed. 

Rose opted for the surgery and accompanied her post with a graphic video of the procedure.

"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," she joked.

Rose said she was left with a "Pez dispenser scar on my neck."
