Kaley Cuoco Nearly Has Her Leg Amputated

The cast is exceptionally candid in the oral history of The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive, Inside Story of the Epic Hit Series. Initially, Kaley spoke of the hardcore crush that she had on her co-star, Johnny Galecki. This led to a two-year romance between the two. Now, she and her co-stars are sharing details of a horseback riding accident from over ten years ago. According to People, the accident nearly cost the actress and horse lover her leg. “That was the darkest, most frightening time in all twelve years [of the show]. Kaley could have lost her leg. It was a series of miracles that allowed us to get through that and for her to come out the other end of that healthy,” TBBT creator, Chuck Lorre shared.

Her ex and co-star, Johnny Galecki added that it was “devastating” to hear that they were thinking of amputating her leg. The incident happened twelve years ago, this month. She was riding a horse that got spooked. Kaley fell off and as the horse attempted to hop over her, it fell on her left leg instead. Lorre coincidentally ran into some of the best surgeons who he had working on Cuoco within hours. Yes, she knew she went in with the possibility of not having a leg but she came out as good as new. Now, September means something even brighter.
