You can take the dressing off after 24 hours.</p><p>If the dressing gets wet or dirty, take it off and replace with a clean adhesive bandage. Your child may also have a bruise at the biopsy site, which can take up to 10 days to go away.</p><h2>Bathing</h2><p>Your child may have a bath or shower 24 hours after the biopsy. However, it is very important to keep the bandage dry or replace it if it gets wet. A wet bandage can contribute to delayed healing and increase the risk of infection.</p><h2>Meals</h2><p>If your child is feeling well enough after the <a href="https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Article?contentid=1260&language=English">sedation</a> or <a href="https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Article?contentid=1261&language=English">anaesthetic</a>, they can return to eating what they normally eat. It is also important to encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids for 48 hours after the procedure.</p><h2>Pain relief</h2><p>If needed, give your child <a href="https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Article?contentid=62&language=English">acetaminophen</a> for pain. Do not give your child any medicines that will thin the blood, such as <a href="https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Article?contentid=77&language=English">acetylsalicylic acid (ASA)</a> or <a href="https://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Article?contentid=153&language=English">ibuprofen</a>, without checking with your child’s health-care provider first.<br></p><h2>Activity</h2><p>After the biopsy, your child will need to stay home from school or day care, and avoid physical activity for the first two days (48 hours). Your child may return to school 48 hours after the biopsy, with restricted activity. Your child should avoid all major activities for two full weeks. These include:</p><ul><li>contact sports</li><li>gymnastics</li><li>diving/swimming</li><li>bicycle riding</li><li>rollerblading</li><li>hockey</li><li>soccer</li><li>skiing</li><li>horseback riding</li></ul><h2>When to see a doctor</h2><p>Go to the nearest Emergency Department right away if your child has any of the following:</p><ul><li> <a href="/Article?contentid=30&language=English">Fever</a> greater than 38°C (100.4°F)</li><li>Throwing up (<a href="/Article?contentid=746&language=English">vomiting</a>) that does not stop</li><li>Severe <a href="/pain">pain</a></li><li>Bleeding or swelling around the biopsy site </li><li>Bright red blood in the urine </li><li>Dizziness and pale colour</li><li>Swelling in the tummy</li><li>General weakness</li></ul><h2>Results</h2><p>The doctor who ordered the procedure will receive the results of your child's biopsy.
