If my kidney stone is close to my bladder is the painful part over with? Or will it be just as bad to urinate it?

In brief: Can't say

Well it depends on the size of the stone.
Drink much water to flush it down.

In brief: Easier

Usually once the stone has arrived in the bladder, voiding it out through the urethra is relatively painless compared to the trip from the kidney to the bladder.
