PLEASE HELP-Surgery for Asymptomatic Kidney Stone?

I have an asymptomatic Right ureteral stone that has been stuck for over 3 weeks...At least the CT scan (x 2 scans) states probable stone although they have difficulty tracing the ureter. My urologist wants to remove the stone even though it is asymptomatic to prevent potential kidney damage.

- Has anyone had surgery for an asymptomatic stone (I only have an occassional dull ache)?

- Anyone had a decent experience with a ureteroscopy with stent placement...All the blogs I've read sound like it is a HORRIBLE procedure?

I have no pain now and am struggling knowing I will be in pain shortly- Surgery scheduled on November 20th
