Sometimes: Sometimes you can feel discomfort and pain after a gastric (stomach) biopsy. However, usually it is not prolonged or severe. If it is severe, the possibility of a perforation needs to be excluded. Of course, the reason for the biopsy may also be contributing to the pain or discomfort. You should find out the results of the biopsy to know for sure.
