LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband says the actress is smiling and talking, a day after doctors amputated most of her right leg.
Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said Saturday that Gabor is heavily sedated and does not yet know that her leg has been removed. He says he’ll tell her when she regains more of her strength.
Doctors at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center decided to amputate Friday when a persistent infection wouldn’t heal.
Von Anhalt says the 93-year-old "Moulin Rouge" and "Queen of Outer Space" star will likely spend up to four weeks in the hospital.
Gabor broke her hip and had replacement surgery in July, and has been hospitalized several times since for swelling in her legs and blood clots throughout her body.
