Los Angeles: Veteran actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is getting a feeding tube inserted into her stomach as she battles to recover from a fall earlier this month.

The 93-year-old star required hip-replacement surgery after injuring herself in a fall at her California home, but her journey to recovery has been slow following a series of complications, reports imdb.com.

She underwent a blood transfusion last week, prompting her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, to ask fans to pray for the veteran star.

He said that the "Moulin Rouge" star is having a stomach tube fitted to ensure she gets the nutrients she needs.
