She went into shock over the weekend but has now been given a different pain medication that improves her health condition.
Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor's time in hospital has been extended after she reacted badly to morphine. The 93 year old had hip-replacement surgery after falling out of her wheelchair at her California home last month and underwent a blood transfusion following complications.
Doctors were planning to allow the Hollywood legend to check out of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Friday, August 6 but Gabor must now stay in hospital for longer. The star went into shock on Saturday and had a bad reaction after receiving painkiller morphine, according to her publicist John Blanchette.
Gabor's condition has reportedly improved since and she has now switched to a different pain medication, reports the Associated Press.
