Zsa Zsa Gabor's health has taken a turn for the worse and doctors have told the ailing actress that she needs to have her remaining leg amputated but she is refusing to have the surgery, reports the Associated Press.

The 94-year-old was admitted to the hospital March 2 after blood suddenly stopped flowing to her left leg.

He husband, Frederic Prinz von Ahhalt, said that she is taking medication and has a "50-50 chance" of living for another year if she continues on without the procedure.

Gabor, who starred in the original film version of "Moulin Rouge," had most of her right leg amputated in January and has been in and out of hospitals over the last year since breaking her hip falling out of bed in July 2010.
