How bad does the packing hurt when being taken out after sinus surgery?

I had sinus surgery on Monday, and my packing is being taken out on Wednesday. How bad is it probably going to hurt? Should I take a pain pill before I go to help with it? PLEASE let me know what to expect. Also has anyone had a nasal bone spur? I had one and my ENT took it off and straightened the bone in my nose. Anyone?
