29-year-model, Lauren Wasser who lost her leg after suffering from Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) caused by a tampon has revealed that she's about to lose her other leg.

The model contracted TSS in 2012 after using a tampon while on her period.She started suffering from flu-like symptoms, which eventually led to heart attack and landed her on life support.

The model, actress and activist never knew she could survive the struggle after she lost her leg in 2012. She was able to turn her struggle into a teaching experience.

Wasser has opened up about the difficulties she still passes through as a result of the TSS and the likelihood the doctors will have to amputate her remaining leg due to lasting complications.

Gangrene began to consume both of her legs, which led to a below-the-knee amputation of her right leg and toe amputations on her left foot. She really struggled to safe her left but the doctors recommended amputation.

Wasser said, she has "a golden leg that I am completely proud of," the left leg she fought yo save has "an open ulcer, no heel and no toes. And over the years my body has produced a lot of calcium, which causes my bones to grow on that foot."
