In brief: Some
Access to vessel at groin is mildly to moderately painful.
May feel pressure in area stent placed. I routinely sedate my patients to decrease discomfort and anxiety. Ask you doctor to give sedation if possible.

In brief: No
Stents are placed in blood vessels, which do not have innervation.
There should be no pain. Depending on where the blood vessel is and how it is accessed, there may be pain in the site where the skin is punctured (eg, the groin is often used to place heart stents).
