No they dont hurt at all, right now its more your skin hurt then the staples, really you dont even feel them take them out. You will do fine no pain meds are needed :)

They have this handy-dandy little contraption that helps them remove the staples easily. You might feel it, but it shouldn't hurt. Oh, and you don't need to load up on your pain meds, but I would take a normal dose before you go.
Let us know how it goes!
