The worst part of the biopsy is the worry before hand as its really not to bad, I would plan on taking the day after off as you might be a little sore. They also say one should not lift I believe over 10 lbs for a few days, other then that its pretty cut and dry... The worst part for me was having to lay still for a couple hours afterwards before I got to go home........ Best to you.
I think the procedure is sometimes super easy, and sometimes not so easy, but it isn't totally predictable. Mine went fine, with no complications, and yet it was tender for a while. I had to be pretty inactive for two days and then careful for about a week. I continued to have slight tenderness in the area for many months. I think that most people here experienced less discomfort than I did however, as I've heard many write about it as if it was no worse than getting a flu shot. I think you should be prepared to need several days but hope you are one who bounces back in hours. Good luck!
