Has Anyone had surgery by Dr. Pysher or another surgeon at SCNV



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had surgery by Dr. Pysher or any of the surgeons at SCNV? What was you experience like? How was Reston Hospital. So far, I am having a really good experience and I would definitely recommend this practice. The office staff is wonderful and so supportive. They go way above and beyond, and Dr. Pysher honestly cares about you.

I had my surgery at Reston Hospital Center and was very happy with my care. They use a team approach so there were a lot of people looking after me, and they all were good and almost too attentive! Of course I can't comment on the hospital's food since all I was allowed was Water, diluted fruit juice and broth... 😁

My surgeon was different, it was Dr Fitzer of Virginia Bariatric Surgery. He and his staff also are wonderful. There seems to be no shortage of excellent bariatric surgeons in NoVa...it sounds like you will be in good hands!

Did you have a private room like Roz has in her video? I just need to know for my husband and if I need to book a hotel room for one day or three.

Yes, I was definitely in a room by myself. There wouldn't have been room in there for a second bed! There was a nice recliner chair that your husband can probably sleep in, if you want him there. I wouldn't let mine come--we live 5 hours away and someone had to stay home with the dogs. Besides, when I'm under the weather I HATE having people hanging over me. So I rode the train up, and then stayed in a motel for an additional night before taking the train home. Worked out great, thanks to Amtrak, Metro and Uber! Although I had to argue with the hospital about being released to an Uber to get to my motel, but when I threatened to walk instead, they relented...

I have 4 dogs. I was more worried about the dogs being home by themselves. I have a doggie door they can come and go. My dogs have food and Water 24 hours a day so there is no issue with them scarfing down food and I have a doggie door. I have 3 chihuahuas and a golden. My daughter also lives two blocks away, but I worry about her coming in the house when we are not there. My Golden might bite her, seriously, not hard, but a warning bite. She is not the brightest crayon in the box. The Chihuahuas love my daughter so there is no issue with them. My doc put my mind at ease and told me if my surgery is in the AM, I will most likely be discharged the next day, so that would only be two nights away from home. My husband will be staying with me. I was thinking of booking the hotel for him for a second night so he can go back and get some rest. I am pretty sure that is what I am going to do.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
