London, Jan 18 (IANS) Veteran actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is believed to have no idea she had her leg amputated from above the knee.The 93-year-old actress, who had her right limb removed above the knee after gangrene set in and doctors were unable to save it, has not yet been told by her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt that she has undergone the procedure, reports

Prince Frederic was warned by medical experts not to inform his wife about the procedure amid fears it could raise her blood pressure and make her recovery from the operation very difficult.

While Zsa Zsa currently believes she has only had a small part of her leg removed, her husband has vowed to “tell her eventually” that she has lost the limb from above the knee.

The stage and screen star - who has been married seven times - has been in and out of hospital since suffering from two blood clots following hip surgery last July, and was even read her last rites by a priest in November 2010 after developing a “massive blood clot” in her leg.

Zsa Zsa was then admitted to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles Jan 2 after doctors feared she could lose her life if the limb wasn’t amputated.
