How much pain after a cyst removal?

I'm having a sebaceous cyst removed from my back and I'd like to know how much discomfort I'm going to be in afterwards, and if I'll be able to (or want to) go back to work for the rest of the day.

My doc referred me to a surgeon to have a sebaceous cyst about 1.5 inches in diameter removed from my back, between my shoulder blades.
He said it would be a fairly quick and simple in-office procedure, but he didn't say how much discomfort I would be in afterwards. Do you think I'll be able to go back to my job afterwards, or should I make arrangements to have someone fill in for me?
Most of the time I sit at a desk, and I have a pretty high pain threshold.
