In brief: Anesthesia

Stone surgeries are typically done under anesthesia so you should be comfortable.
Of course the location and size of the stone make an impact in your overall recovery. You should do well.

In brief: Yes, some but ...

Nothing is free and always comes with a price; so is stone removal.
Largely, the pain related with kidney stone removal is manageable and can be well managed with understanding reality and judicious use of pain medication; not bad.
