In brief: Can vary greatly

Any surgical procedure will have some sort of pain associated with it - because everyone tolerates pain differently, it's near impossible to truly answer your questions.
Rest assured, your nurses and doctors post-operatively will monitor your pain levels and correct them as needed or as able. Remember, reasonable pain control does not mean you feel no pain / zero pain / zero out of 10 on the scale
