London: Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor might have to spend few more days in hospital after reacting badly to morphine.

The 93-year-old had hip-replacement surgery after falling out of her wheelchair at her California home last month (Jul10) and underwent a blood transfusion following complications, reports a news daily.

Doctors were planning to allow the Hollywood legend to check out of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Friday (06Aug10) but Gabor must now stay in hospital for longer.

The star went into shock on Saturday (07Aug10) and had a bad reaction after receiving painkiller morphine, according to her publicist John Blanchette.

According to sources, Gabor`s condition has reportedly improved since and she has now switched to a different pain medication.
