'Lizard Lick' Star Undergoes LIFESAVING Surgery

5/4/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amy Shirley -- one of the stars of TruTV's "Lizard Lick Towing & Recovery" -- is recovering from EMERGENCY SURGERY to remove a blood clot in her leg that doctors say could have been fatal.

31-year-old Shirley tells us she went to the doc after noticing a knot in the back of her right leg that was tender to  the touch. Once docs took a look, they determined it was clot -- and feared it could travel to her heart, lungs or brain.  

Doctors immediately slated her for emergency surgery to fix the problem. 

Amy says the surgery was a success -- and afterward, doctors instructed her to wear "granny-blood-clot-hoes" to help with her recovery.

As for the show, Amy tells us she will "just run the office or lay low in the backburner" for the next few weeks.

Zakk Wylde had to wear those same granny hose when he had his blood clot.

Did she say "hoes" instead of "hose" or is that a mistake on TMZ's part?

What are granny-blood-clot-hoes? Are they a group of sluts?

She looks better with darker hair. The blonde doesn't fit well with her at all.

She needs to lose a good 50+ pounds before showing her legs in a photo like that.

I imagine that a blood-clot hoe would be scary on it's own, but a granny blood-clot hoe? **shudder** Definitely not as attractive as the standard panty hoes.

(I'm guessing it's a mistake on TMZ's part, sadly... I love you guys, but you need a proofreader.)

She looks great!! She use to be a body builder so she has a more athletic body. I would much rather see her than some toothpick who looks like they would fall over if you breathed on them. I think she looks healthy and fit. I love the Lizard Lick crew!!!!
