'Lizard Lick' Star Undergoes LIFESAVING Surgery

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.
