Brief Answer:
Slight pain can stay for a few days. Watch for other symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Liver biopsy can cause slight to moderate pain. This pain is usually of the peritoneum and usually settles within a few days.
More important is to watch for the following symptoms:
Is the pain increasing?
Is it localized or spreading to other area of abdomen in the right side upper to lower?
Any pain on coughing, sneezing or any activity?
Any other symptoms?

Please consult the Doctor if any of the above symptoms are there for clinical evaluation and Ultrasonography and other tests to see for or rule out any bleeding/clotting or so.

I hope this answer helps you.
Please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.

Hi, I was given this report from a HSG test. Could you please tell me what this means? etro flexed uterine cavity, normal patency and contrast spill into the peritoneum left was demonstrated, faint whisp of contrast was seen in the proximal right fallopian tube. Contrast was not confidently identified beyond this. No definite contrast spill was seen on the right side of the pelvic perenial cavity.Left fallopian tube faint contrast line outlining the proximal right fallopian tube was seen but no contrast opacifleation beyond this. No definite spill of contrast into the peritoneum on the right side was demonstrated and therefore right tubal patency cannot be confirmed
