A little: Some medications that are used for anesthesia might hurt but many anesthesiologists will give medications that will make you forget and some medications for pain before they give you the medications that is mostly known to hurt (propofol).

Usually getting the IV placed is worse than what you'll remember of them making you go to sleep.
