The amount of postoperative pain and discomfort depends on the type of procedure performed as well as the extent of the deformity that is being corrected. Simply removing part of the protrusion may not involve a lot of pain. The more displaced the toe is, though, the more difficult it is to get things lined up properly again. Cutting and realigning bones is a more complicated surgery and your recovery may be more painful.
