xaLos Angeles, July 30, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Highly acclaimed actress Zsa Zsa Gabor who is recovering from hip-replacement surgery after falling from a bed at her home, is reported to be undergoing further medical treatment to get a feeding tube fitted in her stomach. Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the husband of the 93-year-old actress has revealed to the media that the doctors at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center are trying to insert a feeding tube inside her stomach which would provide her with the nutrients that she needs.

According to reports, the doctors took the decision to fix a feeding tube in the stomach of the actress as she was not being able to eat any thing much since the hip-replacement operation. The stomach feeding tube would ensure that the ailing actress can receive the much-needed nutrients so that she can recuperate as early as possible. Following the surgery, Zsa Zsa Gabor also supposedly underwent blood transfusion sometime last week which prompted her husband to urge all her large number of fans to pray for the speedy recovery for the “Moulin Rouge’ star.

The veteran actress was admitted to the medical facility few days ago after she broke her hip following a fall at her Los Angeles home as she attempted to pick up the phone while watching television. The “Touch of Evil” star has been partially paralyzed since the year 2002 after she was involved in a car accident. The veteran actress has stayed away from the limelight following the accident and has rarely been seen in public.
