In brief: Not much really

You should be somewhat sedated for the procedure and if not then (of course) there is going to be local anesthetic administered.
You should feel very little discomfort.

In brief: Painful

They put a needle into your biliary system with anesthetic locally but most people doe non invasive imaging first.
You should consult your doctor.
