Gabor 'refusing surgery' on leg

Doctors have revealed Zsa Zsa Gabor needs to have her remaining leg amputated, but the 94-year-old actress is declining the surgery.

Publicist John Blanchette says the ailing star will be released from the hospital on Friday. She was admitted on Wednesday after blood flow to her left leg suddenly stopped.

Most of Zsa Zsa's right leg was amputated in January because of gangrene.

Her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, says the actress is taking medication and has "a 50-50 chance" of surviving for another year without surgery.

Zsa Zsa has been hospitalized repeatedly since July, when she broke her hip falling from bed.

She appeared in films ranging from Moulin Rouge in 1952 to Queen of Outer Space in 1958. She also appeared on TV specials, game shows, and guest-starred on various TV series, often playing herself.
