Zsa Zsa: Feeding Tube Inserted

July 30, 2010

The hip replacement procedure went very well, but she has not been able to swallow, so they decided to give Zsa Zsa a feeding tube. Recovery is going slow and we will have to wait and see how the 93 year old is able to handle it. To find out all about it, including photos and a video, keep reading below.

Back in 2002 Ms. Gabor was in a terrible car accident that has left her partially paralyzed ever since. On July 17th she fell in the bedroom of her California home, breaking her hip. She underwent the process of getting a new hip, but is not doing as great after.

Initially the hopes were high as the surgery went fantastically at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. She was expected to be in recovery there for less than a week.

“It looks like it was a successful operation. She will be held at the hospital for four to five days minimum while she recuperates.”

As of last Saturday, she was still in critical condition, but was a little better. She “wasn’t talking” and “wasn’t aware of what was going on,” however. Now she has not been able to take food or liquids so Zsa Zsa’s feeding tube was being inserted yesterday.

“It wasn’t a normal recovery, and the doctors were concerned.”

At her age they can’t waste time, and they needed to get her nutrients fast. We have not heard how the procedure went or what she should expect in the coming days yet.

This woman has been an icon in the Hollywood community and you may have seen her in ‘Moulin Rouge’ or ‘Touch of Evil.’ It is tough to see someone get to this stage and to hear that Zsa Zsa’s feeding tube is what’s keeping her healthy. Check out these pictures of her now and then, and leave me your comments after you watch the video.
