(Newser) – Zsa Zsa Gabor already lost one leg, and now doctors say they must amputate the remaining one. But the 94-year-old actress is refusing the surgery, her publicist says, and she will be released from the hospital today. She was admitted Wednesday after blood stopped flowing to her left leg; most of her right leg was amputated in January due to gangrene. Without the surgery, her husband says she has "a 50-50 chance" of surviving another year, the AP reports. Click for more on Gabor's recent medical struggles. (Read more Zsa Zsa Gabor stories.)
