Zsa Zsa Gabor suffers setback, may need more surgery

Zsa zsa A feeding tube that was replaced in actress Zsa Zsa Gabor's stomach during surgery Sunday has been leaking, and she may need to undergo another operation, her publicist said.

The 94-year-old actress was rushed to the hospital Saturday after an infection caused the tube to come loose, causing bleeding and a high fever.

Initially, the operation to replace the tube was deemed a success and Gabor was expected to return home this week.  

But publicist John Blanchette said Tuesday morning that there had been complications with the tube, and there were concerns it would be insecure and might cause another infection.

It was unclear whether the actress would undergo additional surgery. Blanchette said Gabor has been eating solid food.
