In brief: Minimal
The I.V. Placement will be a needle stick - often the site is injected with a local anesthetic first, but that is still a needle stick.
People tend to worry a lot about the I.V. - very few have significant pain with it.

In brief: Rarely
It is a very minor part of an operation, with a specialized nurse usually using a small needle with little or no discomfort during its insertion.
If there is any feeling, it very very brief and very quickly over.
