In brief: Depends

If you are referring to just trimming the corn, it is not painful at all.
If you are referring to surgery to remove the cause of the toe then there is mild post op pain.

In brief: Not painful

Corn is dead skin.
Should not be painful to remove. If there is a boney overgrowth that may require surgery.
