Docs to

Amputate Part of

Zsa Zsa Gabor's Leg

1/12/2011 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Zsa Zsa Gabor's doctors believe the infection in her leg has gotten so bad, the only way to stop it from spreading to vital organs is to amputate a significant part of her limb ... TMZ has learned.

1112_zsa_zsa_EX_Getty_01
Zsa Zsa's husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt tells us ... if the doctors move quickly, they may only need to remove a small portion of Zsa Zsa's leg. 

But depending on how fast the infection spreads, the Prince tells us, doctors may have to remove the entire leg.

We're told Zsa Zsa hasn't been slated for surgery yet -- but Prince is working on getting the 93-year-old under the knife by the end of the week.

Good grief. No wonder insurance premiums are so high. If I am 93 and you need to cut off my leg, please pull the plug! What kind of quality of life is there at this point??

Y do he got    

A KNIFE at 93 is a real no no..I`d say inject some antibodys into and around the infection,give her the right blood thinners and put alot of heat and and UV rays to it and her whole body while also giving her some time in a salt bath and a little bit of swimming.If those don`t work don`t cut let it be..it wil never heal at 93 if removed or cutup as the healing time is`nt going to happen in this lifetime forget cutting try anything else.GOD bless

Y do he got    

ALSO a blood transfusion with loaded up blood full of anti bodys and a few roids keep the leg up for a while and move the leg around deep massages and heat packs.You have to keep the body moving or it stops pumping blood to the lowers and fingers toes ears so on.NEVER cut after about 80 as staff infections will eat her alive.Better to die sedated than be eaten alive by infection.

Oh my god.

About 30 years ago I drove into the parking garage at my office and a white Rolls Royce Corniche was in my spot with a California plate that said ZZG.

I laid on my horn and cussed that woman out onlyh to have Zsa Zsa get out her car and look like she was gonna kill me.

She kept my spot for 3 days that week.

I just kept my mouth shut.

Who let it get that bad? Shame! Don't even say "she wouldn't go to the doctor"! She's 93..you just tell her she's going. She's not gonna put up much of a fight. Yeah, I know it's Zsa Zsa, but look at her - she doesn't have much fight left.

this guy needs to stop talking about his wives health issues...if someone i loved was at risk of losing a limb, the last thing that would pop into my head is 'I need to call TMZ and let them know whats going on'...

This is so sad & wrong on many levels in my opinion. This poor lady! I certainly hope someone steps in & rescues her before the doctors amputate her leg, I very seriously doubt she will recover from the surgery. Very sad & disturbing. Anyone else think she resembled Geena Davis when she was younger?

Good luck, Zsa Zsa...Hang in there.

... On a brighter note, she can always revive her career as Jack Sparrow's grandmother.

Where is her daughter? Why is the freak-of-a-husband calling all the shots...and way too late at that? This should have never gotten this far gone. The whole situation is sad and disgusting.

Zsa Zsa is like family to me. I grew up watching her on tv. I had never seen a women so beatiful and glamorus.Her kind of glamour is no more. She is the last of the true glamour girls of the Marilyn Monroe era.
Praying for you Zsa Zsa.
