Zsa Zsa Gabor To Have Half Her Leg Amputated

UPDATE II: GossipCop.com is reporting that a Gabor rep told them that doctors are not yet amputating the leg, but are "trying two days' worth of heavy antibiotics," to try to save it.


UPDATE: TMZ spoke with Gabor's husband, Prince von Anhelt, who said doctors recommended that Gabor have the surgery done before the holidays. Gabor declined, wishing to spend perhaps her last holiday with her family, but doctors insisted today that ignoring the problem further would cost the actress her life.

Gabor was diagnosed with blood clots in her leg in November.


PREVIOUSLY from the Associated Press:
LOS ANGELES -- A representative for Zsa Zsa Gabor says she is back in a Los Angeles hospital to have part of her leg amputated.

Publicist John Blanchette says doctors examined a growing lesion on Gabor's leg Sunday and decided she needed to return to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for surgery.

The 93-year-old Hungarian-born actress broke her hip in July and has been hospitalized several times since. She asked for a priest to read her last rites in August.
