Former Batwoman actress Ruby Rose took to Instagram story to reveal her surgery and the complications brought by the procedure on July 28, 2021. 

The 35-year-old became emotional in the video as she detailed how she was rushed to the hospital after suffering complications from the surgery.

Rose first clarified that she took a break from social media to sort out some stuff and some health issues. Then, she revealed she did a procedure during the sabbatical and maintained the surgery went well.

It took over an hour for her to find a hospital that would take patients. Even after she reached the hospital, she wasn't being accepted into the ER. 

The Orange Is the New Black star cried as she told her Instagram followers that the emergency rooms were rejecting patients. Stating that her case was quite serious, she showcased her gratitude for being lucky enough to be hospitalized after a bit of a standoff. 

We stuck it out for a little bit longer and we were lucky enough to get accepted by a hospital.

The Melbourne native then shared how amazing the front-liners were.

She also shed light on the severe effects of the pandemic on the health system and requested all her followers to stay safe and keep others safe. In addition, she urged everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible. 

Rose voiced her sadness at how people could go through more difficult situations than her during such times of peril. She added, "It's just… it doesn't need to be this hard for everyone."
