Zsa Zsa Gabor Gets Leg Amputated And Doesn’t Know It

- By Bossip Staff

Zsa Zsa Gabor had to undergo major surgery this week after doctors discovered a gangrenous infection that nearly took her life. Doctors removed most of her leg in an effort to save her but due to high doses of morphine, she hasn’t quite noticed yet.

Zsa Zsa Gabor smiled and ate ice cream on Saturday, a day after doctors amputated much of the actress’ leg to fight a gangrene infection that could have killed her, her husband said.

“She talks to me and she smiles a little bit,” Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, told Reuters.

Von Anhalt and John Blanchette, a spokesman for the 93 year-old Gabor, said the star of 1950s movies “Moulin Rouge” and “Lili” still does not know her leg was amputated.

“I told them (doctors) not to talk to her, because I didn’t want her to get hysterical and the blood pressure goes up,” he said.

He said Gabor is on morphine to take away the pain, and that in the coming days he will tell her about the surgery that removed most of her right leg.

Gabor ate ice cream and some sausage on Saturday, her husband said.

Blanchette said doctors are “guardedly optimistic” about the actress’ recovery. “She was chatty and feisty this morning,” he said.

Gabor is currently hospitalized at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center in Los Angeles. She fell at home and broke her hip in July last year and since that time has been in and out of the hospital.

Sad to see someone so vivacious deteriorate so quickly. Hope she gets better soon.

      @ Rene:

      This is true. I’ve read that after an amputation, the mind sometimes thinks the removed limb is still present, and can fool the person into thinking its “itching”, causing the person to try to scratch it….but of course there is nothing to scratch.

    Once you break a hip there’s about an 80% chance of death within a year. It’s a pretty devastating injury for the elderly and can lead to a lot of complications. I hope she bounces back!
