93 year old actress Zsa Zsa Gabor will undergo surgery to amputate the lower half of her right leg.

The surgery is intended to prevent the spread of gangrene from a growing lesion on the former star’s leg.

Zsa Zsa has had a battle with health problems in recent times. In July she broke her hip and has been going back and forth between the hospital and home since then. In November it was discovered that the actress had blood clots in her legs.

The surgery was advised before the holidays, but the actress opted to toast in the New Year before going under the knife.
