In brief: No pain before
I do not know what surgery that you will be having, but there would not be expected to be pain before the surgery.
There may be very minor discomfort with inserting the small intravenous catheter, but well trained nurses make the sensation minimal. Otherwise there would not be pain before going under anesthesia.
