Ailing actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is facing the loss of her leg, says her husband.

According to TMZ.com, Prince Frederic von Anhalt said that he has taken his wife to hospital and fears her leg will be amputated as doctors try to stop a blood clot from spreading, reports Contactmusic.

Von Anhalt said doctors had advised him before the holidays to take her in and have the surgery done, but Gabor refused.

The medics have since told her if she didn't have the surgery immediately she would lose her life.

Gabor was hospitalised in November (10) with a 'massive blood clot'.

Previously, Von Anhalt had told the Los Angeles Times that Gabor had a blood infection and was suffering poor circulation in her right leg.

The 93-year-old has been in and out of hospital since breaking her hip in July 2010.
