Why do you lose use of legs/feet, limbs after spine surgeries?

I'm searching for answers to the whys?

Without considering RSD into equation, why would someone find themselves constantly battling the quick paralysis of limbs, when in some certain position?

For instance: Cross my legs, and then realize that my foot has lost feeling and my leg is about to go as well

Lots of pins and needle sensation suffering. When the paralysis hits, of course have to move, and then feeling begins to return but with terrile pins and needles worse than what I fight regularly.

Buring bottom of feet if you know what I mean.

I don't know how this is happening in both regions. Have had three lumbar surgeries and two cervical.
