In brief: Usually, disappear..

Stone removal for pain from its blockage will relieve its related symptoms, but if requiring a stent as part of stone management, you have to endure its related pain especially during/at the end of voiding.
Fortunately, counseling for realistic expectation and judicious use of drug to relieve pain or bladder irritation will make most of patients reasonably comfortable to cope with it.

In brief: Maybe

For 24 hours you will have some pain and discomfort depending on if you are having it done thru a scope or with lithotripsy.
