"For the past few years (decade) I've been dealing with a spine issue," she wrote. "I am now recovering from a back procedure, but I do need to stay active."

She added that she wanted to reveal the health news herself, rather than having the media break it, saying: "Before I get seen with my cane and wheelchair in public, I'd rather put it out there that I'm fine and going to be fine."

The Aussie actress was wearing a t-shirt that bore a slogan of 'Strong Female Lead'.

She also shared another photo with her girlfriend Jess Origliasso, who is a member of pop duo The Veronicas, with a caption that read: "Behind every strong female lead is another strong female lead."

She also asked people to recommend movies, books and video games to keep her entertained - asking Chrissy Teigan in particular for some gaming recommendations.

Fans were quick to wish Rose a speedy recovery, and praised her for being open about her condition.

The Aussie actress is arguably most famous for her role as Stella Carlin in Orange is the New Black, but she's also starred in numerous other projects including John Wick: Chapter 2, Pitch Perfect 3, and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

Rose has also added that there was one 'plus side' to her health problem, and that she had had to quit smoking.

"I'm finally done," she said. "That filthy, smelly, dirty, slowly killing you while you pay for it to suffocate you, is finally out of my life. I quit yesterday. And for my back (and Mum) I'll never start again."
