Has anybody had kidney stone removal?

So finally got the surgery coming up, the one with the laser, and i'm wondering if anybody else has had it and what to expect?
Google has been spectacularly unhelpful and said everything from;
'you'll go home the same day, a little discomfort and a couple of motrin will be all you need'.
'you'll be in overnight, need a week off work and a healthy supply of oxycodone'

So you'll see my confusion on the matter :lol: Anybody got any idea of what to actually expect and not the dubious mumbojumbo the doctors say? (i'm assuming theyre as bad as dentists when they say 'a little discomfort'.
