Zsa Zsa Gabor is reportedly unaware that doctors amputated half of her right leg on Friday, according to her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt.
Zsa Zsa Gabor had part of her right leg amputated after she had a serious gangrene infection that was resistant to antibiotics.
Gabor’s doctors removed the infected part of her leg at Los Angeles’ UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on Friday and the operation went well.
Gabor’s husband Von Anhalt said on Saturday that his wife was talking and responding well after her surgery, but was not aware that doctors had to remove part of her leg.
He told the media, “She talks to me and she smiles a little bit. I told them (doctors) not to talk to her, because I didn’t want her to get hysterical and the blood pressure goes up.”
Von Anhalt will tell his wife about the procedure in the next few days.
Gabor’s rep John Blanchette is hopeful that she can return home in two weeks to celebrate her 94th birthday, but she is likely to need to stay in the hospital for a month.
