Cuoco went into emergency surgery following the accident last October, knowing there was a chance she might lose her lower leg.

Cuoco has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, explaining the circumstances of her riding accident.

“I had a little accident,” she explained.

Cuoco described how she fell off her horse and it walked over her. The sound of her breaking bones sounded like crunching leaves, she said.

She showed off two scars – one just above the ankle bone on the outside of her leg, where she said the bone had protruded, and another, much longer surgical scar, running up the front of her leg from just above the foot.

Surgeons inserted two steel bars in her leg to stabilise the shattered bone.

“The good thing about that is I know when its going to rain,” she says.

“I literally feel like I’m 110 years old … ‘the storms are coming’,” she says.

    My foot made he same sound when my mare spooked and stepped hard on my foot. Then the pain found it’s way to my brain.

    The plates in my right ankle give me a heads up about the rain too.
